Hello,

Every week, we survey Canadians and Americans to explore their perspectives on COVID-19 and other current events. To help you stay up to date, we are sharing the results of our latest survey.

COVID-19 SURVEY RESULTS – JULY 14, 2020
Conducted using our representative LEO (Leger Opinion) panel, in partnership with the Association for Canadian Studies (ACS), and published in The Canadian Press.
  • 27% of Canadians and 41% of Americans agree that requiring people to wear a mask in public places is an infringement on their personal freedoms.
  • 68% of Canadians and 58% of Americans think police officers should be able to fine/arrest people who do not wear masks in places where it is mandatory to do so.
  • When it comes to the COVID-19 crisis, an equal proportion of Canadians and Americans (40%) think the worst is yet to come.
IN THE NEWS: THE FEDERAL BUDGET DEFICIT
  • 78% of Canadians are worried about the size of the federal deficit and how it may affect Canada in the long term.
  • 41% of Canadians think that given the deficit, the Federal Government should immediately and quickly begin to scale back COVID-19 support programs and payments for individuals and businesses, 44% think it should not, and 15% are unsure.
VIEW THE SURVEY RESULTS
On July 17, Christian Bourque, Executive Vice-President, Leger, and Keith Barry, Partner, Vice-President, Strategy, lg2 will present the results of the third and final wave of our three-part study about how consumers’ habits and behaviours are changing due to the COVID-19 crisis.

This study is the fruit of the collective expertise of Leger and lg2: on one hand, you will have a direct line to the voice of consumers with related analyses of raw data and, on the other hand, a more empathetic reading of the numbers to help identify their impact on the transformation of business dynamics. ​

The webinar will outline the study’s key findings and courses of action as social distancing measures relax.
