A Comparison of North-South and West-East Differences in Political Attitudes in Canada
AbstractUsing data from the 2000 Canadian Election Study, this paper compares
diff erences in political values and attitudes from west to east with correspon
ding diff erences from north to south. On social issues, the West is not
gen erally more traditional or conservative than the East, but the North
is some what more conservative than the South. On economic issues, the
West is somewhat more libertarian than the East, while the North does
not diff er much from the South. In attitudes toward Ottawa, the North
shows greater signs of alienation than the West.
