Quebec loses status

A poll suggests Quebecers are no longer among the least religious residents of Canada. The reason? Quebecers are now slightly more likely to feel an "attachment to religion" than they have in previous years, while other Canadians are less likely to feel attached to religion, according to a Leger Marketing poll for the Association for Canadian Studies. While Quebecers have tended to be "more averse to organized religion," the recent data suggest their "antipathy to religion may have bottomed," the survey concluded.
