New Study Reveals That Many Canadians Plan To Bend COVID-19 Rules Over Spring Break
According to a new study by Insights West, a significant amount of people are planning to break Canada's COVID-19 rules during spring break.
Insights West surveyed 1,614 English-speaking Canadians about how often they follow COVID-19 restrictions in their province.
BC residents are least likely to [be] following all of the rules.
One province had disappointing results. In fact, only 34% of B.C. residents said they follow the rules all of the time.
Next, the study asked Canadians if they plan on doing any spring break activities that would violate health orders.
About half of respondents said they are considering doing at least some of the activities.
The list includes attending indoor gatherings, going on vacations, skiing at resorts outside their communities, and flying outside of Canada, to name a few.
There are a number of reasons why surveyed Canadians said they plan to bend or break the rules.
Respondents said they were keeping their bubbles small, so they felt they could break the rules on occasion.
Other apparent reasons for rule-breaking are pandemic fatigue, confusion over the rules, or not believing the rules are necessary.
