The poll results also disclosed that overall 60 per cent Canadians are inclined to believe that Canada will not be entering a recession next year.

A recently conducted poll by Ipsos Reid on consumer confidence in 24 countries showed that Canadian respondents surpassed Germans in terms of economic optimism. The vice-president of public affairs at Ipsos Reid, John Wright, observes that “on the whole, it’s a little bit like the numbers that were released on the economy.” He claims that “we grow a little bit, not a lot. It’s a steady growth and that’s just how the country has responded to it.”
