Notes
"Canadians are growing more comfortable with a range of different faiths, according to a February 2017 Angus Reid Institute opinion poll on six major religions. The three religions most favourably viewed by Canadians are Christianity, Judaism and Buddhism, while Islam is more often viewed skeptically, though increasingly less so". "[P]erhaps in the context of contemporary geopolitical conflicts, almost half (46%) of Canadians view Islam negatively. 'The lower levels of favourability are likely the result of the fact that Islam is almost the exclusive focus of media attention in Canada and internationally', said Paul Bramadat, PhD, director of and professor at the Centre for Studies in Religion and Society and in the history department at the University of Victoria, B.C., in an interview".
