More than a third of Canadians surveyed think the government should supply humanitarian aid to Mali, but not send combat troops to fight Islamist rebels.
The Canadian Press-Harris/Decima survey suggests fewer than 20 per cent of respondents are in favour of deploying soldiers to help French and African forces trying to drive rebels out of the north.
Twenty-eight per cent support sending non-combat trainers, equipment and support personnel.
