    TORONTO | Canadians have nice interest in the policy, they no longer believe in the electoral promises of the politicians, shows a survey carried out by the firm Forum Research.

    According to the stroke of the probe, three in five Canadians do not trust the politicians when they make promises to voters during an election campaign. Not less than 17% of the respondents have said that they do not believe any election promises.

    At the opposite end of the spectrum, 40 % of Canadians have supported, and will always have a little confidence, but only 3 % of the people surveyed were happy to place a lot of trust to politicians and their election promises.

    Voters older (42 %), earning between 80 000 and $ 100 000 per year, or supporting the federal liberals (60 %) are more likely to believe the promises of politicians, said Forum Research.

    If the Canadians are cynical, they are, however, many (81 %) to say they were interested in politics between election cycles. Two in five Canadians even claimed to pay attention to politics, against only 1 % who admitted to never interest in the subject.

    The people most likely to be interested in politics are men, those earning more than $ 60,000, those with at least a college diploma or university degree, Albertans and activists, conservatives and bloquistes.

    Canadians less interested in politics are young people, women, the poor, residents of the Atlantic provinces and Quebec, the less educated and the activists of the green Party.

    The survey was conducted by phone from 1408 Canadians from 22 to 24 January. The margin of error is plus or minus 3 %, 19 times out of 20.
