CANADIANS’ MORAL COMPASS SET DIFFERENTLY FROM THAT OF OUR NEIGHBOURS TO THE SOUTH

July 9, 2016 By Bruce Anderson & David Coletto

Recently, the Gallup organization in the US updated a series of questions they have asked over the years about what behaviours or choices Americans consider to be moral or immoral. We decided to mirror the questions in our most recent survey of Canadians.

Here’s what we found:

• The vast majority in Canada (95%) and the US (89%) consider birth control morally acceptable. But Canadians are 22 points more likely to say it is moral to have a baby out of wedlock, (84%-62%). And 26 points more likely to say abortion is morally acceptable (69%-43%).

• Canadians are 21 points more likely to say gay or lesbian relations are moral (81% vs 60%), 19 points more likely to say that sex between unmarried people is moral (86% vs 67%) and 14 points more likely to say divorce is moral (86%-72%).

• Canadians are far more likely to feel that doctor assisted dying is morally acceptable (79%-53%).

• Interestingly, there is almost no difference when it comes to the death penalty, with majorities in both countries (58% in Canada, 59% in the US) considering it morally right.

• Canadians are 15 points more likely to think pornography in morally acceptable than Americans (49% in Canada, 34% in the US).

• Americans are more comfortable with the idea of medical testing on animals and wearing cloning made of animal fur, by 14 points. Americans are also more open to the idea of cloning animals, but most people in both countries feel this is immoral.

• Very few in either country believe it would be moral to clone a human (14% in Canada, 13% in the US).

Moral compass is not that different at all.
The differences you see here, you would probably see the same difference within the different regions of each country.

I notice they didn't ask if Sheria law is considered moral or immoral for each country. Probably no difference here either.

That we see things dfferently is not news to me or likely to most Canadians. It woukd be surprising to most Americans, though who generally don't have a clue what we're like.

You could have left the last three words off.

It's called arrogance and self centered.

There is one moral perogative (sp) live or let die.

You're confusing worry with genuine acknowledgement.

And that's what makes us better than the rest bub.

Canada has a higher unemployment rate than the US,
The US has a higher productivity rate than Canada
Canada sells over 80% of its products to the US because they are too stupid to sell to anyone else.

You are only better if you have your head up your azz bud, best to pull it out and see what's going on around you eh!!

Truth is Americans don't give a damn about anywhere else but America.

How far up your *** can you cram your head?

An American can tell you.

If some of you could spend some time as a fly on the wall in some of our many older communities rather than hanging out in recently civilized areas (according to you) you still would not learn.
