PROVINCIAL PULSE: Horgan enters office on a high, Wall departs on top


Two months after announcing his resignation as Saskatchewan Premier, and retirement from politics, the latest analysis of quarterly polling data by the Angus Reid Institute finds Brad Wall’s approval up four points.

As the old depart, and the new arrive, his level of approval is matched by B.C. premier John Horgan, who was sworn in late-July after striking a deal with BC Green Party to resolve a hung parliament and defeat incumbent Liberal Premier Christy Clark. Horgan’s approval as leader of B.C. is measured for the first time this quarter.

Notably, however, neither Wall nor Horgan hold majority support for the job they’re doing in their respective provinces, nor do any of their provincial counterparts across the country.

On the other end of the spectrum is Ontario’s Kathleen Wynne, who faces an election in less than ten months but is approved of by fewer than one-in-five (17%) Ontario residents.

Here’s what else you need to know this quarter.
