Quebecers divided over Charter of Values
There are no surprises in a new Leger Marketing survey asking Quebecers about their thoughts on the proposed Charter of Values, but the strong support that was manifested when the draft was released in August is evaporating.
43% of respondents are for it, and 42% are opposed.
Last month 57% of Quebecers were in support.
And their is a huge gap when the responses are broken down along linguistic and political lines.
While 49% of francophones are in favour, 72 % of anglophones and 66 % of allophones, disapprove of banning public servants from wearing religious symbols on the job.
70 % of Liberals polled say they are against the Charter of Values while 80% of respondents who describe themselves as Parti Quebecois supporters are in favour.
