Canadians most positive toward immigrants?

This is interesting. A new survey by Transatlantic Trends (German Mashall Fund) suggests that Canadians have the most positive attitudes toward their country’s immigration policy than Europeans and Americans.

“According to the third-annual Transatlantic Trends: Immigration survey of public opinion in North America and Europe, majorities in the United States (73%), the U.K. (70%), Spain (61%), France (58%), and the Netherlands (54%) believed that their government was doing a poor job in managing immigration. Only Canadians were split, with 48% feeling positive and 43% responding negatively about their government’s handling of immigration. In the United States (67%) and U.K. (63%), respondents also said immigration policy would affect their vote.”
