About 80 per cent of Canadians say that there’s extraterrestrial life elsewhere in the universe.
This, according to a recent poll completed by the Angus Reid Institute.
“You talked about E.T.s and other strange things, were you surprised by the results?” asks Bruce.
One researcher involved with the survey says they were a little bit surprised.
“We asked Canadians whether or not, at the outset, if there are things that just happen on earth that cannot be explained by science,” says Dave Korzinski, research associate at Angus Reid. “About four-in-five Canadians agree that this is the case.”
The poll asked about things such as extraterrestrials, ghosts and the possibility of communicating with the dead.
Bruce learned that one-third of Canadians say it’s definitely, or probably possible to communicate with the dead.
“That one was a little bit surprising too, and that number is actually driven mostly by women,” says Korzinski.
