Poll: Would you support changing the name of British Columbia?

Earlier this month we ran a story about a survey that suggested the proportion of British Columbians in favour of changing the province’s name to reflect its Indigenous heritage has increased.

Research Co. said its survey found that 32 per cent of respondents are in favour of a change (a six-point increase), with 50 per cent of 18-to-34-year-olds on board.

A slim majority – 53 per cent – said they want BC’s name to remain unchanged, down seven points on a similar poll conducted in August 2021.

The full survey data can be accessed here.
