National Poll Results
A new poll by Angus Reid in partnership with Fair Vote Canada shows strong support for a citizens’ assembly as a mechanism to allow ordinary citizens to lead the conversation on electoral reform.
Here are the results from questions included in a survey of 1,510 Canadians conducted from September 12-13, 2019. Full tables here.
Respondents were then introduced to the idea of a National Citizens’ Assembly:
“Questions have been raised about the best way to examine the issue of electoral reform. One proposal is to hold a national citizens’ assembly. A citizens’ assembly is a non-partisan group of citizens independently selected to represent the public that is given the time and resources to:
- Learn about electoral reform issues from experts from Canada and around the world;
- Consult with Canadians in communities across the country;
- Take what they have learned and make a recommendation to the federal government for a new or updated voting system in Canada.”
