Hi. This is the National Day of Remembrance of Victims of Terrorism. I must remember next year to poll on what Canadians think originated this day.

A thread ... I invite you to follow along. If I was guessing, I'd guess significant numbers of people in this country think the worst incident of terrorism perpetrated on Canadian citizens was 9/11. Others might think of the Nova Scotia shootings, the attack on Parliament Hill, or something else.

In other words, when we asked ppl where they *think* most of our newcomers are arriving from, 64% said the Middle East. But Middle Eastern/North African countries represented only 12% of actual immigration in recent years: #elxn43 Image Here's another big misconception: as a nation, we significantly overestimate the number of refugees coming into the country, and underestimate the number of economic class (skilled worker) immigrants: #elxn43 Image
