Canadian Social Values Survey

Hey, I just completed the online Environics social values survey.  Here are a few of the upfront questions on the survey.

Currently, the Province of New Brunswick relies on money from the federal government, called Equalization Payments, to fund a large portion of its budget. Equalization Payments are given only to those provinces whose economies fall below the Canadian average.

 

Some people say that even with the right leadership, the New Brunswick economy will never reach or exceed the Canadian average no matter what we do and, therefore, we will always receive Equalization Payments. Other people say that with the right leadership, the New Brunswick economy can reach or exceed the Canadian average and, therefore, Equalization Payments will no longer be needed.

 

Which view is closer to your own?

The New Brunswick economy will never reach or exceed the Canadian average

The New Brunswick economy can reach or exceed the Canadian average

Neither

Some people say that the best way to create economic growth and jobs is to cut taxes and reduce the regulatory burden on businesses. Other people say that the best way to create economic growth and jobs is to have greater government investment and participation in the economy. Which view is closer to your own?

Check one only

Cut taxes and reduce regulatory burden on business

Greater government investment and participation

Not particularly sure which of those questions is related to social values.  Me thinks the NB government wants to talk with us peoples.

One Response to Canadian Social Values Survey

  1. nbt says:

    Will the NB government ever be able to afford to sanction an entire survey full of important questions on the economy like most other have provinces. Some people say that even with the right leadership, the New Brunswick will never be able to afford more then a couple of questions jammed into a survey dubbed “social values”.

    Which view is closer to your own?

    The New Brunswick government will never reach the point where they can afford more then three questions in a rogue poll.

    New Brunswick government can reach the point where they can afford to be conducting business properly.

    New Brunswick government will always be relegates to using Corporate research associates for lame, fuzzy popularity contests.

    Neither
