But at the same time, 54 per cent of Canadians say they are 'ashamed' of how politicians have let the Freedom Convoy protests get out of hand
OTTAWA – Two-thirds of Canadians support Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s decision to invoke the Emergencies Act and believe it’s time to clear out Freedom Convoy protesters in Ottawa, even if people get hurt in the process, reveals a new poll.
But neither the federal Liberals nor any other level of government should take this as a sign of support for their management of the blockades, as a slim majority of Canadians (54 per cent) say they are “ashamed” of how politicians have let the protests get out of hand, according to data collected by Maru Public Opinion.
It appears, per this poll, that Canadians are mostly behind using this law to clear out the truckers and that people wanted them out more quickly.
My personal observation is that most of the people freaking out about the Canadian government's response are from the USA and not from Canada.
This is the most recent poll I can find on the topic, if anyone can link to something newer, I would love to see it.
