Support for Canada’s military mission in Afghanistan has dropped below 50 per cent, a new Innovative Research Group survey suggests, marking a significant decline over the past three years. 45 per cent of Canadians now support the mission, down from 59 per cent in June 2006. Quebecers voiced the most opposition to the mission, with 68 per cent saying they were against sending troops to Afghanistan. A majority of respondents in Alberta and the Atlantic provinces also opposed sending troops, with 51 per cent in each region saying so.
