However, the countries like Australia, Canada and USA, where there are huge requirements of new population to join in view of the aging population and to develop new territories, requirement of professionals in many fields as Medicine, Agriculture sector, this anti immigrant sentiment is not easily understood, unless we go a little deeper.

Leading advocate Bill Chu, originally from Chinese descent, attributes the rise in such sentiment to following factors-

1. Growing unemployment, especially the immigrants from Asian Countries, have no hesitation to work extra hours and thus are able to grab jobs from Canadian born workers;
2. The new immigrants take lot of time and many still do not assimilate in Canadian Culture. Canadians of European descent are so concerned with this that they do not prefer to stay in localities largely inhabited by Asians Immigrants. In Surrey, British Columbia, you will rarely see a Canadian from European descent.
3. Immigrants not respecting Canadian Values- The per capita percentage of offences like tax Evasion, non observing of traffic rules, drunken drawing are much higher among Asian immigrants as compared to others
