Phoenix Pay System Problems
Affect Opinion of Trudeau Government
Toronto, June 12th
– In a random sampling of public opinion taken by The Forum Poll™ amongst
1483 Canadian voters, more than half are at least somewhat familiar (55%) with
the Federal Government’s Phoenix Pay System. Just under a quarter (24%) say
they are very aware of it, while almost a third (31%) say they are at least
somewhat aware. More than a quarter (28%) have no familiarity at all with
Phoenix, while (16%) say they do not know.
Most who know about it either don’t
care, or feel it’s changed their opinion negatively
those at least somewhat aware of the Phoenix Pay System, only (5%) say their
opinion of the government became more positive in response. More than 4 in 10
(44%) said their opinion of the government was not affected by Phoenix, and the
same proportion (44%) say their opinion became more negative. (7%) said they
most likely to say their opinion of the government changed negatively in
response to Phoenix include those aged 35-44 (50%), 45-54 (47%), earning
$60,000-$80,000 (48%) or $80,000-$100,000 (51%), living in Alberta (53%),
supporting the Conservatives (63%), with a college/university (46%) or
post-graduate degree (48%).
“More than half have heard something about the
issues the Federal Government is having with the Phoenix Pay System, and while
a large proportion say that the situation has negatively affected their opinion
of the Liberals, it’s not all bad, as the same proportion doesn’t really care,” said Dr. Lorne Bozinoff,
President of Forum Research.
