By a margin of five to one, Canadians say the government should reject the almost 500 would-be refugees from Sri Lanka who arrived recently
Asked which statement best described their own opinion on what should be done with the ship, which may include members of the banned Tamil Tiger terrorist group, 60% agreed with the statement: "They should be turned away - the boat should be escorted back to Sri Lanka by the Canadian Navy." Just 17% agreed with the statement: "They should be accepted into Canada as political refugees."
