Nik on the Numbers
More than one third of Canadians think the Asia-Pacific region holds the most economic opportunity for Canada, while one Canadian in four says the United States holds the best opportunity, according to the latest Nanos Research survey for Policy Options. On Canada’s relations with China, a clear majority of Canadians see more of an opportunity than a threat on a wide range of issues, from exports to investment.
Between June 11th and 12th, 2012, Nanos Research conducted an online survey of 1,000 Canadians 18 years of age or older, released in the September issue of Policy Options Magazine. This survey is representative of the Canadian population.
