What do Ontario residents think of Premier Doug Ford’s policy cuts?
When it comes to his government’s mandatory gas pump stickers which warn of the impact of federal carbon pricing measures, a new online poll suggests 52 percent are opposed, while 25 percent support the idea, with 22 percent undecided.
The Corbett Communications survey also reveals that 48 percent of Ontarians don’t like the new blue license plates with the slogan A Place to Grow, while 20 percent favour the change, and 31 percent are undecided.
The poll also suggests there is more opposition than support for the Ford PC’s decision to move to larger class sizes, while forcing students to take online high school courses.
But when it comes to the premier’s plan to allow beer and wine to be sold in corner stores, more residents support the move than oppose it. But that support drops substantially if the move comes with a cost of up to $1-billion in financial penalties for breaking the government’s 10-year agreement with the Beer Store.
