Canadians take positive view of Occupy

Poll may reflect mounting concern about job prospects


Most Canadians who are aware of the Occupy Wall Street movement view it positively, according to a new Nanos Research poll conducted for The Globe and Mail and La Presse. The survey found that 58 per cent of respondents who knew about the protests have a favourable or somewhat favourable opinion of them. The poll may indicate that Canadians are increasingly worried about job prospects and savings plans amid Canada’s slowing economy, pollster Nik Nanos told the Globe and Mail.

  1. “…who knew about the protests…”

    How out of touch would one have to be NOT to know about them?

    • There are lots of people in this country who are unaware of who the PM is.

      • Lucky them! LOL!

    • That was exactly my thought as well. 

  2. Just goes to prove the old theory … People are stupid.

    • Yeah, but we knew that after the last election..

  3. I support the protesters who have found their voice and I hope
    they will not lose hope and that they will not be shut up. They’re sleeping out
    in the cold, in unfamiliar cities, with complete strangers, under threat of
    arrest, night after night, for the benefit of someone other than themselves­.

    That is what is resonating with me and other Canadians. Also, this movement is
    questioning why people don’t identify or vote
    for their own best interests!! Perhaps ordinary Canadians are starting to
    ask themselves the same question.

  4. This needs to be seen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WVkC7kRFV8c

    Fortunately, hasn’t happened here..
