Voting is an individual right and choice and not someone else’s choice. Every individual has the right not to tell anyone whom they vote for and if they choose to vote or not.

The survey was conducted between March 20 and April 5, 2018 with a sample of more than 1000 Ontario residents 18 and older.

There is no mention of how and who sponsored this survey, but the question that arises from this survey of why and who sponsored this survey remains a key question.

But if they want to stay in power, the Liberals “have to make progress with males,” he said. “you can’t surrender that kind of difference and win the election.”
