SES-University at Buffalo Poll of Canadians and Americans - Americans Keen on Co-operation with Canada
A new cross-border survey of Canadians and Americans released by SES Research today found Americans are very supportive of greater co-operation with Canada on issues ranging from an integrated energy policy through to border security and anti-terrorism measures.
“More than eight of ten Americans support greater co-operation with Canada on border security, anti-terrorism measures and having an integrated energy policy,” explained SES President Nikita Nanos.
Support for greater co-operation with Canada cut across all regions of the United States. In Canada, however, Quebecers, although still supportive of co-operation with the US, were more likely to have less intense support for co-operation.
The strong area of agreement related to having an integrated energy policy to remove a dependence on Middle East oil. Almost nine of ten Americans thought it was important to have an integrated energy policy (89%) and 85% of Canadians thought the integrated energy policy was important.
