Coronavirus: As Canadians huddled at home, feds found meagre support for green recovery plan


Internal federal government polling from June, just released to Global News through an access to information request, shows that the spread of COVID-19 was easily the most important thing on most voters’ minds as summer approached, regardless of gender, age, income or where those Canadians lived. But the polling also told the Trudeau government two other things: there appeared to be little appetite for an economic recovery plan that placed a high priority on quickly transforming to a carbon-neutral economy; and voters appeared to have little concern about mounting deficits and debt. The results from the poll would almost certainly have been used for the government’s late-summer political agenda, which included proroguing Parliament and then re-setting its direction in a Speech from the Throne.
