The paper explains that economic strife and the hope of acquiring wealth, while apparently more pronounced in the 20th century, was the primary motivator for these people to take life-threatening risks as well as the risk of being turned back. The paper discusses the shift of perceptions of immigrants by native Canadians from a racial, white superiority perspective against the backdrop of colonialism to that of cultural paranoia fueled by biased media coverage and political secondary gain. The paper also discusses the suspicion of immigrant welfare abuse. The paper asserts that although steps have been taken to control immigration, cultural diversity remains elusive.
