A new poll suggests most Canadians feel no attachment to the British monarchy, and few are personally impacted by Queen Elizabeth’s death.
The survey, conducted by Leger and the Association of Canadian Studies, also found that a majority of Canadians are indifferent to King Charles III becoming monarch.
While her passing has prompted an outpouring of sorrow and tributes by some, nearly three-quarters of poll respondents say the Queen’s death has little to no personal impact on them.
A similar percentage of respondents say they have no personal attachment to the monarchy, and just over 60 per cent say they are indifferent about King Charles the Third’s accession to the throne.
The poll was conducted on September 9th and 11th following news that the Queen, the longest-serving British monarch and Canadian head of state, died at the age of 96 on Thursday September 8th.
The online survey of 1,565 Canadians cannot be assigned a margin of error because internet-based polls are not considered random samples.
