Four months before the election, ethnic media are reporting on some of the same opinion polls and surveys circulating in the mainstream media, but often with an emphasis on newcomer preoccupations and ethnically specific concerns.
Mandarin: What are new immigrants worried about
Vancouver's daily radio source, Fairchild Radio, reports:
A poll found that 72% of Canadians are worried about their future. The survey stated that anxiety is caused by both personal and global factors. According to the poll, for new immigrants, the rising cost of living is what they're most concerned about. The matter of second-highest concern to them is that it's hard to find a job. Still, 77 per cent said they are "proud of how tolerant Canada is as a country", and 85 per cent mentioned they were LGBTQ-friendly. (02/07/19)
