Quebecers Are The Most 'Relaxed' In Canada About COVID-19 Measures, Says A New Study

A new survey by Léger Marketing shows that Quebecers are the most "relaxed" Canadians when it comes to respecting COVID-19 related public health and safety measures.

The survey spoke to 1,539 Canadians across the country, with questions ranging from their likelihood to receive vaccinations to their views on Donald Trump.

Sixty-seven percent of respondents from Quebec said they have relaxed in the past month when it comes to COVID-19 regulations.

These regulations include social distancing, wearing a mask in indoor public spaces, frequent handwashing and not gathering in large groups.
