The pollster arrived at its results by calling a “random stratified sample” of 5,250 Canadians between June 12 and 15. The poll used both landlines and cellphones.
Responses were “weighted using demographic information to targets based on the 2016 Census.”
Nationally, the survey had a margin of error of +/- 1.35 per cent; the margin varied in the provinces.

Here are Canadian premiers’ approval ratings in their home provinces, from lowest to highest:
10) Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne — 19 per cent
9) Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Dwight Ball — 21 per cent
