Results show the widening gap between the views of politicians, and the citizens they are supposed to represent.

A new poll by SOM-Cogeco shows that a majority of Quebecers want illegal migrants turned back at the Canada-U.S. border.

51% want migrants to be stopped from entering Canada, while 37% want migrants to be allowed into the country.
