A new Ipsos poll suggests Canadians would prefer a hardliner position above re-establishing diplomatic ties with Iran over the targeted shooting of a Ukrainian airliner that killed 57 Canadians on board. The poll, released on Wednesday, showed 76 per cent of Canadians surveyed would support increased sanctions against the Iranian government, while 89 per cent said they wanted the Trudeau government to press Iran to pay damages to Canadian families affected by the plane crash. The poll was conducted on behalf of Global News between Jan. 24 and 27, interviewing a sample of 1,000 Canadians aged 18 ears and up online. It found strong support for a hardliner position among voters of every party, including the Conservatives, Liberals, New Democrats and Bloc Quebecois.
