Your opinions have an impact on our world. Here are some of the latest news stories where surveys completed by members of the Angus Reid Forum are getting attention and appearing in the news.
After CBC reported Saturday that the father at the centre of the measles outbreak in Vancouver didn't vaccinate his children, a social media firestorm was ignited with comments flooding in from supporters of vaccinations as well as those more skeptical about their use. A new Angus Reid poll suggests that 70 per cent of Canadians support mandatory vaccinations, but nearly a third of Canadians believe the science on vaccinations is not clear.
Earlier this month, an Angus Reid poll indicated two-thirds or 62 per cent of respondents say China’s record on human rights and the rule of law should be a more important consideration for Canada than trade and investment opportunities when assessing their relationship. The online survey was conducted in January among a representative randomized sample of 1,700 Canadian adults who are members of Angus Reid Forum.
“The idea of talking about decriminalizing all drugs, heroin, cocaine, other controlled substances, I think that continues to be a mental hurdle for more than half the country,” Kurl said. The Angus Reid Institute conducted an online survey from February 1 – 6, 2019 among a representative randomized sample of 1,723 Canadian adults who are members of Angus Reid Forum.
'This poll finds a hypothetical "Western Canada Party" leading or tied for the lead in vote intention in each of the four western provinces,' the report says. The polling was done online, among a sample of 4,024 Canadians who are members of the Angus Reid Forum’s polling panel. The margin of error is +/- 2.5 percentage points 19 times out of 20.
But asked to prioritize one or the other as more important for Canada — “trade and investment opportunities” or “human rights and the rule of law” — nearly two-thirds of respondents or 62 per cent said they’d prioritize human rights. People who said they would prioritize trade, instead, were far more likely to see Trudeau as handling the current situation poorly. The results were based on an online survey using a sample of 1,700 Canadians who are members of the Angus Reid Forum.
Quebec is the least popular province in Confederation, according to new polling from the Angus Reid Institute. The survey, part of a four-part series on western Canadian identity, found that, on average, just five per cent of Canadians outside Quebec believe that Quebec is close with or friendly towards their own province; what’s more, 53 per cent believe that la belle province takes more from Confederation than it gives. And, 21 per cent of Quebecers feel that way about their own province, too.
