POLL: Clear Majority Of Canadians Want “Swift Action” To End Illegal Blockades

And when asked who is most to blame for the crisis, most Canadians say either Ottawa or the Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs.

The same survey showing 69% of Canadians saying the country is broken also shows the same number of people calling for “swift consequences” for those who block rail service.

Just 31% do not support “swift consequences.”

Additionally, when asked whether (while disagreeing with the methods), Canadians would stand in “solidarity” with Indigenous Peoples to “give them a voice to solve their issues,” the country splits down the middle. 50% say yes. 50% say no.

On the issue of who is to blame for the illegal blockade crisis, 42% say Ottawa. 27% say the Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs.

Smaller groups blame environmental protesters (11%), while 9% blame elected Indigenous band leaders.

8% blame the B.C. government, and just 3% blame the RCMP.

Notably, the RCMP Commissioner angered many Canadians when she said “enforcement is the last option” for dealing with the illegal blockades.

This survey shows what you and I already know: The Trudeau government is totally out of step with public opinion, and every day they go without ending the illegal blockades is another day the Canadian People are betrayed yet again.
