A new poll shows that Ontarians’ relationship with the provincial government these days is much like the weather today – a little frosty.
Angus Reid Institute finds Premier Doug Ford’s government is criticized heavily by Ontarians on all but one of the issues they deem most important.
Three-in-five Ontario residents choose cost of living/inflation (63%) and health care (61%) as their top concerns for the province. Both priorities well outpace housing affordability, the third most chosen issue, selected by one-in-three (34%).
The only issue for which the government receives more praise than condemnation is its ongoing handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, chosen as a top priority for just eight per cent of Ontarians.
The poll was conducted in late November.
