Sondage: 93 % de Canadiens supportent l’achat et le transport interprovincial d’alcool

Ottawa, ON. – Un sondage récent de Nanos Research démontre que 93 % de Canadiens sont pour permettre aux Canadiens d’acheter de l’alcool des autres provinces et de le transporter au-delà des limites provinciales.

En termes de leur niveau de soutien pour permettre aux Canadiens d’acheter de l’alcool des autres province et de le transporter au-delà des limites provinciales, une grande majorité des Canadiens disent qu’ils sont pour (81%) ou plutôt pour (12%) cela, alors que moins d’un Canadien sur dix disent qu’ils sont contre ou plutôt contre (trois pour cent respectivement). Deux pour cent sont incertains. La marge d’erreur de ce sondage aléatoire de 1 000 Canadiens est de ±3,1 points de pourcentage, 19 fois sur 20.

« Il est évident que les Canadiens souhaitent acheter de l’alcool de toutes les autres provinces. Cela est d’autant plus important vu que la Cour Suprême du Canada va bientôt entendre la cause Comeau. Les gouvernements fédéraux et provinciaux doivent respecter la constitution et les opinions des Canadiens et permettre l’achat et le transport interprovincial de l’alcool sans ingérence. »
