This presentation regarding the thirteen myths concerning the 2015 federal election was presented by Dr. Lorne Bozinoff at the MRIA Ottawa Chapter on November 26, 2015
Close to half would vote for the Liberals if an election were held today (46%).
Two thirds are concerned Syrian refugees settled in Canada will create a strain on our health care and social services (63%).
One fifth have used marijuana or cannabis in the past year (19%) and one quarter will use it in the future once it is legal (24%).
More than half are concerned Syrian refugees invited to Canada will get preferential treatment in the immigration queue (54%), and one third are “very” concerned (34%).
Almost exactly equal proportions believe the Syrian refugees due to arrive in Canada will have a positive impact on the country (34%), will NOT have a positive impact (34%) or have no opinion on the question (32%).
One half are opposed because “we have enough problems in this country already” (49%), while about one third each oppose the plan because “refugees are a terrorist threat” (39%) or because they object to the cost of the exercise (35%).
One tenth have already donated money or goods to refugee relief (9%), and a further one quarter plan to do so in the future (23%).
Just less than half support the government’s plan to resettle thousands of refugees over the next few months in Canada (48%).
Forum’s Interactive Voice Response (IVR) polling methodology again proves to be a precise tool for measuring public opinion, accurately predicting that the Liberals would form a majority government.
