Webinar: Does Canadian Federalism Amplify Policy Disagreements? Values, Regions and Policy Preferences

Canadians’ differences over values have a considerably greater effect on their public policy preferences than does the region where they live, finds a new IRPP Study, by Éric Montpetit, Erick Lachapelle and Simon Kiss. Based on an extensive survey conducted in five regions in early 2015, this important research challenges the longstanding focus on region-based value cleavages. Co-author Éric Montpetit presents the study’s main findings and discusses the implications for policy.
