Daily Tracking: September 19, 2021

This survey was conducted using High Definition Interactive Voice Response (HD-IVR™) technology, which allows respondents to enter their preferences by punching the keypad on their phone, rather than telling them to an operator. In an effort to reduce the coverage bias of landline only RDD, we created a dual landline/cell phone RDD sampling frame for this research. As a result, we are able to reach those with a landline and cell phone, as well as cell phone only households and landline only households.

The field dates for this survey are September 16-18, 2021. In total, a random sample of 1,327 Canadians aged 18 and over responded to the survey. The margin of error associated with the total sample is +/- 2.7 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.

Please note that the margin of error increases when the results are sub-divided (i.e., error margins for sub-groups such as region, sex, age, education). All the data have been statistically weighted by age, gender, and region to ensure the sample’s composition reflects that of the actual population of Canada according to Census data.

EKOS follows the CRIC Public Opinion Research Standards and Disclosure Requirements.

    I wish the smaller parties had been invited to the debate

    It is either going to be the end of liberalism as we know it in Canada and the continuation of an era of medical tyranny we have never seen in Canada or the western world. This is leading to a rise of right of conservative ideology leading to a nationalist populizm where differences of opinion will be valued not discouraged.

    Voting in this unnecessary election to reward a Government that is able to navigate a very difficult pandemic and believe get us through a fourth wave, with a divided electorate.

  • Voting in this unexpected election to reward a government who delivered on many promises although is with admitted fallibility. In such division we need our Heath to be protected and shifty candidates who can’t answer whether it’s are leaders vaccinated, or if he can keep his caucus in line on fundamental issues and never answers a straightforward question?

  • Voting in this unexpected election to reward a government who has delivered on many promises, with very questionable ethics. During such divisions regarding healthcare, we must be pro active, We need a Federal Government to urge their Provincial counterparts to do the right thing when it comes to vaccinations.

    Canada will never elect the Canadian Trump: O’Toole

    1. Employers are *not* permitted to request, or reveal, an employee’s health record. This is basic worker rights. Are you saying you would like to change it? Would you like your employer to broadcast your medical history on the news? Or, are you expecting a double standard for some people which would not apply to yourself? The only possibility is one of these two.

    2. You don’t know what “the right thing” is regarding vaccinations. You only know what you have been told/read, and you assume you are correct. You may be wrong. Someone agreeing with you does not necessarily mean that he is “doing the right thing.” An unvaccinated MP in Ottawa poses no greater risk to the public than anyone else, and zero risk to you, presuming you do not live in Ottawa.

    I take it you did not think through your position very thoroughly before you started typing. I suggest that, regarding other people’s medical condition/history, that the right thing for *you* to do is the same thing as the right thing to do before the pandemic and for centuries prior: to mind your own business.
