Majority approve of Parliamentary Motion M-103

In the second national wave of the Campaign Research Poll, a mixed-mode, online and telephone opinion survey conducted among 1,883 Canadian voters, the majority approve of Parliamentary Motion M-103, which proposes, among other things, that the government should “condemn Islamophobia and all forms of systemic racism and religious discrimination” (56%), whereas just one quarter disapprove of this non-binding motion (24%). As many as one fifth take no position on the issue (21%). Approval is highest among the youngest (70%), in Ontario (60%), among Liberals (68%) and New Democrats (67%) and among the wealthiest ($100K to $250K - 65%). By sub-region, approval is highest in the GTA surrounding Toronto (71%).

Disapproval is especially common to the boomer cohort (55 to 64 - 29%), males (27%) rather

than females (20%), in Alberta (31%), among the less wealthy ($20K to $40K - 28%) and among

federal Conservatives (39%).

“It can be seen clearly that M-103 is popular with the Canadian electorate, especially those in

more diverse urban areas,” said Eli Yufest, CEO of Campaign Research. Eli may be reached at or at (647) 931-4025 ext 109


This poll was conducted between March 5 and 7, 2017, among a sample of 1,883 Canadian

voters. The poll was conducted by a mixed-mode methodology, combining online surveys

(n=1088) and Interactive Voice Response (IVR) interviews (n=798). A probability sample of this

size would have a margin of error of plus or minus 3%, 19 times out of 20.
