Merit Canada, the national advocacy organization for open shop contractors, released the results of a poll showing that Canadians support infrastructure investment by government as a way to get out of the recession caused by COVID-19.

On a scale of 1-10 (10 most important), 1,023 Canadians were asked how important is it that each of the following play a significant role in any government COVID-19 recovery plans:

  1. Spending on infrastructure construction (6.7/10)
  2. Meaningful tax cuts for small business (7.0/10)
  3. Getting big infrastructure projects approved (6.4/10)
