It appears the tragic image of the body of a three-year-old Syrian boy washed up on a Turkish beach is not above politics.
A new Angus Reid Institute poll suggests what you think about Canada taking in more refugees, likely reflects your party preference.
The poll was done after the photos of little Aylan Kurdi took social media by storm.
On the surface, the party lines are clearly drawn.
When asked “Should the Canadian government take in more refugees?”, 39% of Conservative supporters surveyed said yes.
The NDP and Liberal voters polled evenly at 62%.
Within the Tory party vote, you can see a divide along religious lines.
Forty-seven per cent of respondents who consider themselves practicing Christians said the government should take in more.
Thirty-five per cent of non-practicing Christian voters agreed, as did just 24% of non-religious Tories.
Taking politics out of the equation: The same poll suggests 70% of Canadians believe the country has a role to play in helping the refugee crisis.
