According to a recent poll conducted by Maru Public Opinion on behalf of the National Post, two-thirds of Canadians (64%) want the COVID restrictions to end.
This included 71% of respondents in Quebec and 65% in Ontario, Canada’s two most populous provinces.
According to Maru, the polling over the past few months reveals that Canadians believe that COVID is not going anywhere and are prepared to live with the virus.
The National Post reports that the poll also found that 54% of Canadians do not believe that the unvaccinated should be pressured into taking vaccines.
Since the Freedom Convoy started in Canada, calling for an end to the COVID mandates, there has been a marked shift in Canadians attitudes towards the restrictions. In early January, 40% of Canadians were in favour of ending restrictions. That had grown to 54% by the end of January and two weeks later 64% want them to end.
