A mere 3% say Canada should cover all the costs, with widespread opposition to our taxpayers being forced to foot the bill.
Recently, I wrote that Harry & Meghan should pay for their own costs in Canada, rather than making Canadians pick up the tab:
“They are both super-rich members of a royal family, and Meghan was personally wealthy ahead of time. They can easily cover their own costs.
You can think of all the things Canadians need help with, all the many Canadians who are in need and could use support.
That’s where the government should be spending money, not on paying the security costs of an super-rich elite couple who are choosing to live here.
Harry & Meghan must pay for their own security, and not one cent of Canadian taxpayer dollars should be spent on them.”
Now, according to a new Angus Reid poll, the vast majority of Canadians oppose the idea of having to pay for the security & other costs that would be incurred if Harry & Meghan end up living in Canada.
The survey gave people four options:
“Pay what ever security and other costs are necessary”
“Pay for some of the costs but not all of them”
“Not pay for any of theses costs – they should cover it themselves”
“Not sure/can’t say”
And the response was clear:
73% picked “not pay for any of these costs, they should cover it themselves.”
Meanwhile, 19% wanted to cover some of the costs.
A tiny 3% wanted to cover all the costs, while the remainder weren’t sure.
When it comes to this issue, Canadians are speaking up loud and clear, and the government needs to listen. Canadian taxpayers shouldn’t have to foot the bill for the expenses of a very wealthy celebrity couple who can easily afford to cover their own costs.
