Commentary
Since our last survey relating to the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Bid December 5-9, 2002, support for the 2010 Winter Olympic bid has remained unchanged. In that independent survey, 75% of respondents generally supported the bid.
Respondents in this survey do not feel that potential cuts to education in the February 2003 budget will seriously jeopardize support for the Vancouver 2010 bid. However, NDP respondents become split on whether to support the bid, or education in BC.
Respondents in this survey reveal they will not provide majority support for the 2010 Olympic bid, if cuts to health are produced in the February 2003 budget.
Those respondents who said they would likely vote for the BC Liberals if a provincial election were held tomorrow, support virtually en masse, the 2010 bid. This support is constant throughout the survey.
Those respondents who said they would most likely vote for the Green Party oppose the 2010 bid, and their lack of support remains constant throughout the survey.
Those respondents who are other/undecided are predominantly committed to 100% support of the bid, with their numbers increasing in general support of the bid, measured against the education question, and remaining relatively strong through the health care question.
