A new poll suggests Canadians are now less supportive of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s plan to pull Canada’s six fighter jets out of the campaign against the Islamic State group.
According to the numbers by the Angus Reid Institute, two thirds of those polled say they either want to see the bombing and training missions continue, or expanded further.
The institute says the poll was conducted after the Paris attacks Friday night.
Meanwhile on the Syrian refugee issue, Angus Reid Senior Vice President Shachi Kurl says both clear support, and opposition to that campaign promise is up only slightly .
“What is significant is that among those who are opposed the big driver on opposition is the timeline issue.”
Kurl says the January first deadline is the issue creating the most anxiety.
