As our data from last week showed, the so-called freedom convoy has been a polarizing issue for Canadians. As tensions continue to run high here in Ottawa and elsewhere across the country, we wanted to dig deeper to explore how the pandemic and subsequent public health mandates have changed how we relate to our friends, colleagues, and families.



Turns out, over half of all Canadians have held different views regarding COVID-19 than someone close to them. Furthermore, a quarter has seen their relationships deteriorate because of this. But, who are these disagreements between? And, are some more likely to end in a failed relationship than others? Well, all these answers can be found in our latest blog post.

However, disagreements are not simply between those who support and oppose vaccines and/or mandates. We're linking to an article from CBC News, highlighting real examples of how disagreements about COVID-19 have driven families, friends, and even band members apart.
