Reality check

Harris-Decima checks in with the electorate.

Recently, NDP leader Thomas Mulcair has made comments regarding the impact of the oil sands on the Canadian economy. Have you read, seen or heard something about these comments?

Yes. 44%
No. 55%

By party affiliation, only a majority of Conservative voters (53%) were aware. By age group, only a majority of those over 50 were aware. Awareness was lowest among women, those 49 and younger and those in Quebec.

Luckily for voters, they will have the next three years to become acquainted with the particulars of the resource development debate.
