Canadians Particularly Tolerant When Conversing with Others

From Angus Reid:

Majority of respondents in the country do not become angry when
discussing any of 11 topics.

[VANCOUVER - Apr. 9, 2008] - Many adults in Canada are ready to say they do not get upset when they become engaged in conversations of a controversial nature, an Angus Reid Strategies poll has found.

In the online survey of a representative national sample, 53 per cent of respondents say they do not become angry when discussing any of 11 different topics. While 64 per cent of British Columbia residents report no problem, the number drops to
46 per cent in Quebec.

Abortion was not one of the "hot button topics". But still it was an interesting survey. I wonder if the self-reported answers really bear out in reality.
