Abstract

With the arrival of some 250 Syrian refugees to Newfoundland and Labrador in 2015, there has been much news coverage of the crisis both at the provincial and national level. Unfortunately, over the past few months, reader comments on on-line news stories from local provincial media (e.g., CBC, VOCM, The Telegram) have expressed a very negative and often prejudiced view on whether Newfoundland and Labrador should accept more refugees. These views, however, appear in contrast with the belief that Newfoundlanders and Labradoreans are welcoming and friendly. The goal of this research was to determine whether Newfoundlanders and Labradoreans hold racist, prejudiced, or discriminatory views.
