Quebeckers support religious-symbols ban, but not secular charter: polls

A new Léger/Le Journal de Montréal poll suggests that support for Quebec’s proposed charter of values remains significant, particularly among francophone residents of the province. But it also indicates that the charter itself, rather than its proposals, may be the bone of contention.

The survey polled 1,207 Quebeckers on Jan. 17 and 18 via Léger’s online panel. Due to the non-probabilistic nature of an online sample, no margin of error applies.
