Politics is a key influencer in North American immigration views – The Battlefords News-Optimist

Published

Immigration has been one of the casualties of COVID-19.

Individuals and families that had already been authorized to settle in Canada have been told to wait longer, in an effort to curb the spread of the virus.

The process of finding a place to live – even for those who arrive with a job offer – is not something that can safely be attempted in the middle of a pandemic.

In any case, the situation is not as dire as the one south of the 49th parallel, where discussions about immigration have focused on the status of the millions of workers who are in the country without documentation.

President-elect Joe Biden has vowed to introduce a bill that would provide a “pathway to citizenship” for undocumented immigrants in the first 100 days of his term.

The views of residents of the two countries on immigration are not always similar. More than half of Canadians (54%) told Research Co. and Glacier Media that immigration is having a “mostly positive” effect in Canada, an eight-point increase since we last visited this issue in January 2019. Only three in 10 Canadians (30%, down six points) say it has been “mostly negative” and 16% are undecided.

In the United States, the issue is significantly more contentious. While 43% of Americans consider that immigration is having a “mostly positive” effect in the country, 36% believe it has been “mostly negative” and 21% are not sure.

Even if the numbers are tighter in the United States, the biggest difference in the way residents of the two countries look at immigration is related to political allegiance. In Canada, 69% of Liberal Party of Canada voters and 58% of New Democratic Party voters believe immigration has been “mostly positive” – compared with only 35% among Conservative Party of Canada voters.

The discrepancy is similar in the United States, with 55% of Democrats espousing the view that immigration has been “mostly positive.” Only 43% of Independents and 34% of Republicans feel the same way.

In Canada, a majority of those who supported the Tories in the last federal election (53%) describe immigration as having a “negative effect.” In the United States, the same proportion of Republicans (53%) also believe immigrants are not benefiting America.

More than two in five Canadians (43%) think the number of immigrants who are allowed to relocate in Canada should remain the same. A third (32%) think the level should decrease, while 17% would prefer to increase it.

The results are not as nuanced in the United States. While 43% of Americans would retain the current level of legal immigration, 24% would increase it and 25% would decrease it.

Once again, centre-right voters are different from all others. We find that 53% of Conservatives in Canada and 39% of Republicans in the United States are willing to reduce legal immigration levels.

The two countries face uniquely different challenges when it comes to policy. In a year that has kept us away from our daily routines, Canadians have become more appreciative of what immigration provides to the country. Three in four (75%) think the hard work and talent of immigrants makes Canada better – a proportion that rises to 81% in British Columbia.

Almost two-thirds of Canadians (65%) believe immigrants should be allowed in Canada only if they adopt Canadian values.

For Americans, the big decision will involve undocumented immigrants who are already in the country. The United States is divided on whether these workers are employed in jobs that Americans do not want (46%) or are taking opportunities away from them (40%).

Just weeks before the 2020 presidential election, almost half of Americans (48%) said they preferred Biden to Donald Trump on immigration. This month, a similar proportion of Americans (49%) agree with the president-elect and say that undocumented immigrants should be allowed to stay in the United States and eventually apply for citizenship. Significantly fewer Americans would choose two different routes: temporary work permits (19%) or deportation (23%, including 39% of Republicans).

On the issue of immigration, Canadians have become more appreciative of the contributions of newcomers, while Americans continue to wrestle with decisions related to those who arrived without permits. In both countries, followers of the two centre-right parties are more likely to question the benefits of immigration and call for a reduction. •

Newfoundland ex-pat makes waves pairing politicians with their cartoon doubles – The Guardian

Published

 on


An effort to shake off some homesickness led Adam DuBourdieu to mix pop culture and provincial politics — namely, taking politicians involved in this election and matching them with their visual counterparts on “The Simpsons.”

Originally from Kippens on the province’s west coast, DuBourdieu, 30, moved to Edmonton, Alta., just before the COVID-19 pandemic set in.

As with many Newfoundlanders and Labradorians, he experienced homesickness in the months that followed the move.

A keen follower of local politics when living in the province, DuBourdieu set about combatting his traveller’s lament by having some fun with the upcoming provincial election.

Combining his love for “The Simpsons” and politics, he matched the politicians running in the election with the Simpsons character he saw as their cartoon counterparts.

“I always loved watching ‘The Simpsons,’” DuBourdieu. “I watched it with my dad.”

Some matchups were tough, while others were easy fits, such as the NDP’s Jim Dinn, a former schoolteacher, and his match with Principal Skinner.

“You can’t take yourself too seriously. Being a teacher, that’s par for the course,” Dinn said of that character match.

Dinn has seen the rather large social media thread containing the pictures.

He said that as a teacher, he learned long ago that you have to have a sense of humour, and it’s a lesson he’s taken with him to politics. Seeing the thread, he took it in good fun.

He said it could be worse. It could turn into a meme like a recent picture of United States Senator Bernie Sanders.

“Let’s have a laugh with it,” said Dinn. “It’s a good thing. It’s a bit of good fun.”

The result was a 47-part thread on Twitter filled with pictures of the politicians and their characters side by side. It is a mixture of retiring MHAs, incumbents and party leaders of all political stripes.

“The Simpsons” and politics have a bit of history. Across its 32 seasons, the show has mixed humour and politics.

The show seemingly predicted the start of the United States presidency of Donald J. Trump, and the Lisa Simpson presidency that followed him.

Coincidentally, Torngat Mountains MHA Lela Evans is paired with the presidential Lisa.

The relationship, however, between “The Simpsons” and the political arena doesn’t stop at a coincidental presidential prediction.

The show has often tackled topics of the day, such as same-sex marriage and gun control, and it has often been accused of having a liberal bias. Springfield’s Mayor Quimby is a regularly appearing character, and DuBourdieu saw him as a perfect match for Conception Bay East-Bell Island incumbent David Brazil.

Homer Simpson — coupled with Topsail-Paradise MHA Paul Dinn — once fought former U.S. president George H.W. Bush after the two became neighbours. Former U.S. presidents Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Gerald Ford have also made cameo appearances on the show.

DuBourdieu tabbed Ford as the right match with Mount Pearl North MHA Jim Lester.

“Politics has always been in ‘The Simpsons,’ and Newfoundland politics has some characters,” said DuBourdieu.

Harbour Grace-Port de Grave MHA Pam Parsons knew at once who voiced Bart Simpsons’ former babysitter, Laura Powers.

“That’s the one where Darlene from Roseanne voiced the character. Sara Gilbert,” she said.

Like other children of the ’80s and early ’90s, Parsons grew up in the early years of “The Simpsons.” She saw the show move from animated shorts on “The Tracy Ullman Show” to a pop culture phenomenon on Fox.

“Growing up as a child, I certainly watched ‘The Simpsons.’ I loved Bart Simpson. I think we all did,” said Parsons. “I even had the little toys that McDonald’s was putting out.”

Parsons is one of 10 women featured in the long Twitter thread. Of the 10, nine are incumbent MHAs and their animated doppelgangers. The remaining one is Newfoundland and Labrador Lt.-Gov. Judy Foote.

She was paired with Springfield Elementary second-grade teacher Mrs. Hoover.

“I like that (Dubourdieu) was non-partisan,” said Parsons, who appreciated the comedic break it offered. “I got a good chuckle out of it.”

The response to the sizeable thread has been favourable online.

It was something that surprised DuBourdieu at first.

Since it went online, there have been dozens of interactions between politicians and the public. People have marvelled at how perfect some of the comparisons are, such as independent MHA Eddie Joyce being matched with oil tycoon Rich Texan.

“It is something people are familiar with,” DuBourdieu said about why he chose to use “The Simpsons” as a reference point.

Liberal candidate George Murphy tweeted that he thought of himself as the lovable barfly Barney Gumble instead of Police Chief Wiggum, the character he is attached to.

Other candidates, such as Progressive Conservative candidate Kristina Ennis and the NDP’s Jenn Deon, have expressed interest in being connected to their Simpsons doubles.

Lake Melville NDP candidate Amy Hogan even went ahead and did her own. It was Jerri Mackleberry, the mother of notable twins Sherri and Terri.

“I think I’m probably the twins, Sherri and Terri’s mom, Jerri. It’s is the purple hair and the glasses,” Hogan tweeted.

DuBourdieu pledged to do a third part of the thread if there is enough interest.

In the days since it was posted, a link to the thread made its way around the Progressive Conservative email chain.

“We got a good kick out of it,” said Conservative MHA Barry Petten. “You can’t help but laugh.”

The Conception Bay South representative readily admitted he wasn’t much of a Simpsons watcher and had little background on Superintendent Chalmers or why he was paired with him.

Still, Petten said he appreciated the work and the humour it brought to the election.

“It’s all good humour,” he said.

Looking back on the process and the result of his humourous entry into the Newfoundland and Labrador political scene, DuBourdieu has no regrets about piecing everything together.

Some comparisons were easy, while others required a bit more thought, he said, and he learned a little along the way, namely, how male-dominated this province’s legislature is.

As the province rolls toward the election on Feb. 13, DuBourdieu will watch from his home in Alberta.

In the meantime, he is glad he got to contribute to the run-up in some way.

“I’m glad I did it and I hope people get a good chuckle out of it,” said DuBourdieu.
