In a random sampling of public opinion taken by the Forum Poll™ among 890 Ottawa voters, the majority approve of a safe injection site in downtown Ottawa for intravenous drug users (54%).
Almost one quarter say they live in a neighbourhood with a marijuana dispensary (23%), and this percentage has doubled since we last asked this question just two months ago (March 23 - 11%).
Four-in-ten voters give the chief a positive job rating (excellent/good - 40%) and an equal proportion give him a negative job rating (fair/poor - 40%).
Fully one half now say the country is moving in “the right direction” (48%), compared to just one quarter who took that position last summer (August 2015 - 26%), and one third in January of that year (January, 2015 - 32%).
Those who will vote Conservative if an election were held today are most likely to select reality TV star Kevin O’Leary as the best choice for party leader (27%), followed closely by former serial cabinet minister Peter MacKay (23%). Somewhat fewer opt for current interim leader Rona Ambrose (16%).
Over half would vote Liberal if an election were held today (52%), while just less than 3-in-10 will vote Conservative (29%). The NDP have just one tenth of the vote (11%), while few will vote Green (3%), Bloc Quebecois (4%) or any other party (1%).
Just fewer than 4-in-10 will vote for the Progressive Conservatives (39%).
Just shy of 6-in-10 approve of legalized marijuana (56%), while just more than a third disapprove (36%).
One half support Ontario’s doctors in their fee dispute with the provincial government (49%).
Two thirds say marijuana dispensaries should be allowed to operate in the city (64%), while just more than a quarter think they shouldn’t be allowed (28%)
