But, "Despite this, Premier Francois Legault continues to be perceived as a fixture of strength, his approval statistically unchanged at 64 per cent."

The premiers with the lowest approval ratings are Jason Kenney of Alberta and Brian Pallister of Manitoba, which have less than the majority of their respective provinces approvals according to the Angus Reid Institute's study.
