The Mainstreet poll also asked Canadians if Donald Trump is elected president, would they support making it easier for Americans to immigrate to the country, as some Americans have said they would like to move here in the event of a Trump presidency.

Eighty-two percent of people in Saskatchewan said they would not support making it easier to immigrate, while nine per cent said they would support it. The other nine per cent of people were undecided.

Nationally, 72 per cent of people do not support making immigration easier for Americans while 11 per cent would support it.
