What do Canadians really think about the Canadian military?

As part of our Time to Lead series, the Globe and Mail commissioned a new poll asking Canadians for their opinions on this country's defence and how the military should be used.

Nik Nanos, president and CEO of Nanos Research, and Globe reporter Campbell Clark took your questions Monday about the results and discuss the implications. (See below for a brief biography of Mr. Nanos)

A replay of Monday's discussion is available below.


Nik Nanos is a recognized leader in the public opinion research industry in Canada, and is regularly called upon by senior corporate and political decision-makers to conduct research and to provide strategic counsel. He is a Research Associate Professor at the State University of New York at Buffalo and is also the past National President of the Marketing Research and Intelligence Association (MRIA). Mr. Nanos was recently elected a Fellow of the MRIA, the highest recognition in the market research industry.
