Each Friday, we will revisit an interesting poll result from the past few years. How do you compare to other Canadians? See our past poll results here.
From April 2015:
While many Canadians will likely participate in events here at home to mark Canada’s 150th birthday and the centennial of various moments of the First World War, traveling to Europe to see the sites, graves and monuments first hand would have a certain meaning and appeal to most Canadians.
Three quarters (75%) ‘agree’ (26% strongly/49% somewhat) that ‘a visit to Canadian battlefields, cemeteries and historic sites in Europe has or would increase their knowledge and appreciation for Canada’s military history, while just one quarter (25%) ‘disagree’ (8% strongly/18% somewhat ) that a visit of this nature would enhance their appreciation for Canada’s history in this way.
