Majority of Canadians do not want Canada First policy

A new poll suggests most Canadians don't want to follow a path similar to the US, but the appeal of a "Canada First" approach remains.

Ekos and The Canadian Press surveyed nearly 5,000 Canadians by phone between September 15th and October 1st.

More than 60% of respondents said they don't want a "Canada First" foreign policy, similar to US President Donald Trump's "America First'' rallying cry.

But the data also suggest more than 1/5 of Canadians think the country should be more isolated -- a marked increase over recent years.
