A new poll of Canadians by Leger for the Association for Canadian Studies has just come out and finds Scottish IndyRef YES is supported by 32% to 29%.
Interestingly amongst those sampled who are from Quebec the split was 44% YES to 24% NO.
The independence referendum that took place in the Province in October 1995 is is the closest comparison to Thursday’s big election in Scotland.
Back then YES went into polling day with a lead but voters in the Province rejected the move by a fraction of 1%. Interestingly the demographic splits that we are seeing in Scotland at the moment – women and the old being the most opposed to change, happened in Quebec.
