Summary Translation: No byline - A national-level survey of Canadian studies was released last Monday. The study is based on people's ability to pay rent, pay other bills and help their families financially. The survey was conducted among 3,700 people between March 26 and April 5. Among the six ethnic groups, the most economically vulnerable Canadians are South Asians. Then there are blacks, Arabs and Chinese. Caucasians will have the least problems. About 45 per cent of South Asians, blacks and Latin Americans say they will have trouble paying rent and mortgage instalments. In comparison, 20 per cent of whites will have such a crisis.
