Canadians ignorant about supply management

More than half of Canadians think beef and pork are under supply management and that milk is not.

In a survey by Angus Reid of 1,512 Canadians during June and July this year, only four per cent said they understand a lot about supply management.

Fifty-two per cent believe beef is supply managed and 51 per cent believe milk is not.

The results open questions about claims from the milk marketing boards that most Canadians support their supply management.
