Canadians may have thought 2016 was a bad year but it seems if you hail from B.C., you’re more likely to be positive than other provinces.
A new Angus Reid Institute poll says British Columbians have the sunniest outlook for 2017.
Angus Reid research associate David Korzinski says a majority of British Columbians think their personal lives will be fairly positive.
“42 per cent of British Columbians expect this year to be more good than bad. Thirty-nine per cent say it will be equally good and bad, and 19 per cent say this year will be more bad than good.”
As for how British Columbians think their province will do in 2017.
Twenty-eight per cent said good, 26 per cent said bad with nearly half saying neutral.
By province, Newfoundland and Labrador, Ontario, and Alberta scored on the lower end with a negative outlook for 2017.
