With a looming election, the Parti Quebecois is now looking at majority support for the Charter of Values.
The CROP poll for La Presse said 51 percent of survey respondents are in favour of the Charter.
Youri Rivest, vice-president of CROP, believes the support isn’t likely to waver unless there is a major mishap.
While support is in majority terms right now, that doesn’t translate to votes for the PQ, according to the report.
Of the total respondents, some 57 percent admit they plan on voting for the CAQ. Views of the Charter have resulted to be either extremely favourable or extremely opposed, according to survey results.
Over 55 percent of survey respondents believe the Charter will have an important impact on who they will vote for come the next provincial election.

- Cross: 58% approval
- Kippa: 47% approval
- Hijab: 45% approval
- Sikh turban: 39% approval
- Burqa: 14% approval
