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.
