The majority of Canadians believe the government is afraid to stand up to China, according to a new poll.
The Angus Reid poll released on Wednesday showed 69% of Canadians believe the federal government is afraid to stand up to the Chinese regime – including 46% of those who voted Liberal in 2021.
Two-thirds (63%) believe China attempted to interfere with Canada’s elections, and half (53%) said the interference is a serious threat to Canadian democracy.
The voter base of every major political party gravitated towards thinking the alleged interference was a serious threat – including 43% of Liberal voters.
Half of all respondents said the government response to interference allegations has been too weak.
