VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Clear Seas Centre for Responsible Marine Shipping and the Angus Reid Institute will be providing a press briefing to announce the findings of their latest Canada-wide public opinion poll on marine shipping on November 30, 2020 at 10:00 AM (PST).
This is the third in a series of biennial studies looking at the attitude of Canadians toward marine shipping. And with COVID-19 looming in the background, the survey found that Canadians are expecting the industry to play a major role in the post-pandemic economic recovery. But they also want marine shipping to continue to make strides in environmental protection.
The survey will also provide details on the study’s new Shipping Confidence Index which was established to better understand the numerous viewpoints on marine shipping in Canada.
Shachi Kurl, President, Angus Reid Institute and Dr. Paul Blomerus, Executive Director, Clear Seas, will be available for questions. The report will be released in both official languages on November 30 in advance of the briefing.
