This project was undertaken to study the political attitudes and behavior of the Canadian electorate. Respondents were queried about their political party preferences and were asked to identify the most important election issues. The survey also gauged attitudes toward Canadian political parties and party leaders, the federal government, the federal civil service, the federal courts, the federal parliament, provincial governments, governments in general, Canada in general, and the North American Free Trade Agreement with the United States.
