Most Canadians see health care as top issue: poll - CTV News

A growing number of Canadians see health care, ahead of the economy, as the top issue facing the country, according to a new poll.

The Nanos Research poll, conducted for CTV and The Globe and Mail, comes on the eve of a federal budget that is expected to focus on job creation and Canada's economic recovery.

It found that nearly 30 per cent of respondents, when unprompted, said health care was the top priority (percentage-point change from last month in brackets):

  • Health care: 29.2 per cent (+6.3)
  • Jobs / Economy: 18.1 per cent (-2.1)
  • Education: 8.8 per cent (+3.5)
  • Environment: 7.5 per cent (-2.8)
  • Debt: 3.8 per cent (-1.4)
  • Unsure: 9.1 per cent (-3.3)

Last April, with Canada still staggering from a worldwide recession, more than half of all Canadians felt the economy was the top issue.

Health care, by contrast, fell below 15 per cent.
