VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – According to a new poll, Canadians have something in common: we aren’t big fans of the people running our provinces.

A recent poll from ‘Research-co’ suggests 52 per cent of Canadians think their province would be better off if someone else were in charge.

And if you live in Alberta or Ontario, you likely wish you had a different Premier.

In Ontario, 60 per cent of those polled think their province would be better off with someone else in charge and in Alberta that number is 57 per cent.

B.C. is near the bottom of the list at 42 per cent.

The study adds at the federal level, 50 per cent of Canadians think their province would be better off with a different Prime Minister.

And it appears there is still some appetite for separation as ‘Research-co’ says the sentiment has increased by 10-points in Alberta compared to a poll in July when asked the same question.
