The headline says it all. You can read it all at the National Post.
Some other interesting tidbits:
According to the poll, conducted last week by Ottawa-based SES research, only 18% of Canadians say cultural and religious minorities should be totally accommodated in Canada, with 53% saying immigrants should fully adapt to the Canadian way of life. The remaining respondents fell somewhere in between.
More than 90% of Quebecers are aware of the term, suggests the poll, and are overwhelmingly opposed to accommodating minority cultures and religions.
Only 5.4% of respondents said "reasonable accommodation" reflected their views and 77% said immigrants should adapt to Quebec and Canadian society.
While most Canadians favour some limits, roughly half say religious and cultural minorities should be accommodated "some of the time".
About 14% said they shouldn't be accommodated at all and 5.6% said they should be accommodated all the time.
The remainder, roughly 22%, said they should be accommodated "most of the time."
You know what this means don't you? It means Canada is a nation of racists concentrated mostly in Quebec! Looks like the multicultural propaganda machine isn't working up to specs. Guess we need some goose stepping brown shirts to coral Canadians into re-education camps for their daily dose of multicultural medicine. It's for the best you understand.
