Environmental issues top Canadian concerns

By | March 06, 2007
Canadian voters consider the environment the most personally pressing issue at this time in history, according to a January poll conducted by Decima Research. Nineteen percent of voters listed the environment as their No. 1 concern, compared with 13 percent in a September poll. Decima CEO Bruce Anderson said global warming concerns are driving the increase and this was the first time the environment was the top concern of voters since 1985 after the Bhopal, India, disaster. Other concerns included health care, war, taxes and the economy.
