The survey was conducted online with 1,008 respondents in English and French using an internet survey platform. A random sample of panelists was invited to participate in the survey from a larger internet representative panel of over 150,000 Canadians.  The survey was completed from June 20 to 23, 2012. 

The data was statistically weighted by age, gender, region, and education level according to census data.
