I just came across a national public opinion poll recently circulated by Angus Reid Strategies.

The most interesting aspect (in terms of this blog) is as right at the beginning of the press release, so I’ll repost it here:

Having Enough Time to Do What They Want is Key for Canadians

Religion and wealth at bottom end of scale; men place more importance on
marriage than women.

[VANCOUVER – Jun. 9, 2008] – Having enough leisure time, being successful in their careers and doing volunteer work are all more important to Canadians than following their religious beliefs, being wealthy and getting married, a new Angus Reid Strategies poll reveals.

In the online survey of a representative national sample, 96 per cent of respondents say having enough free time to do what they want is very important or moderately important to them. Achieving career success (89%), volunteering (74%) and having children (72%) are also high on the scale of accomplishments.

Hmmm… Could this mean that change is on the horizon?
