What do Canadians believe in, and what do young people believe in?
Whereas the past generation has successfully removed everything “religious” from public life (schools, universities, public services, etc.), a new generation of young people has emerged, that is increasingly interested in religion. And although they are much less institutionally associated and visible in public life, a recent poll of the Angus Reid Institute on religiosity in Canada shows that up to 80% of the people believe at least in something supernatural.
