When you write this you are doing the same thing you accuse others of.

In polls, Atlantic Canadians are generally the most favourable to immigration in Canada or near the top. This makes sense because it's a region that could use some immigration and doesn't suffer from the affordability problems or immigrant segregation of other regions. It's not true at all that they are more xenophobic or don't want immigration. The existence of a phrase that was cooked up decades ago and has largely fallen into disuse means nothing.
