Technical Survey results received on casino issue


The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke would like to inform the community that it has received the preliminary results of the Technical Survey to gauge Kahnawà:ke feedback on the proposed casino project. The unofficial results were presented by IPSOS-Reid, a neutral polling company, at a meeting this morning.

In simplest terms, the survey indicates support or opposition to the project as follows:

1.    Support                       52%
2.    Opposed                     41%
3.    Neutral, Unsure, n/a     7%

The random sample survey was conducted between 1 and 8 Enníska/February.

The goal was to complete 400 surveys, which was accomplished.  According to IPSOS-Reid, the approximately 45% participation rate was much higher than Canada’s normal rate of around 10%. Results of 400 complete surveys accurately reflect the entire community to within +/- 4% at the time the survey was conducted.
The complete results will be posted on the MCK website once the entire report is received and reviewed by Chief  & Council. Please be advised that the survey results WILL NOT be the deciding factor on whether or not a casino is built – that will be decided by referendum only

The next steps on the casino issue will be announced shortly.
