Quebec Premier François Legault and Scott Moe topped an approval-rating survey released Thursday by the Angus Reid Institute. Legault received a thumbs-up from 59 per cent of Quebec residents, while 57 per cent of Saskatchewanians gave Moe a vote of confidence in the online survey, which polled Angus Reid Forum members between Dec. 12-19.
Trudeau’s approval rating among Canadians is now at its lowest level since he was elected, according to the Angus Reid Institute’s latest survey. Thirty-nine per cent of respondents in the new survey said they “strongly disapprove” of the prime minister, while just eight per cent said they “strongly approve.”
Canadians appear to be throwing their support behind Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland after the sealing of a new trade deal with the U.S., but rebuking the ministers of energy and immigration, according to a new survey assessing the performance of Liberal cabinet members. The Angus Reid poll heard from 1,800 Canadian respondents through an online survey between November 28 and December 6.
Polling company Angus Reid released the results of their second annual rankings of the performance of cabinet on Friday, just as MPs head back to their ridings until the new year. Angus Reid calculated scores by subtracting the percentage of those saying the minister did a “good job” from the percentage saying they did a “bad job.”
A new Angus Reid Institute study suggests Canadians have a much greater concern over marine shipping when petroleum is involved. The survey of over 2,200 people found 94 per cent of Canadians believe marine shipping is either “very safe” or “generally safe.”
The counter-intuitive discovery puts the lie to the common impression that support for public religiosity in areas like health care, social services and education is driven by evangelical church goers and deeply observant, older, conservative “holy rollers,” said Angus Reid, chairman of Angus Reid Institute. The survey of 2,200 Canadians was conducted in early November, via the Angus Reid Forum, an online community in which people can participate in surveys in exchange for reward points and prizes.
