Canadians are finding one another angrier this year than last year, according to a new poll.
In Alberta, 58% of people surveyed online agree that Canadians generally seem angrier now than a year ago, an Angus Reid Strategies poll has found. In Atlantic Canada, 58% of respondents agree they have noticed more anger, while in British Columbia 55% agree they have observed more outrage.
Close to half (49%) of those surveyed say they have seen other people losing their temper more often than last year, while 39% disagree. Women admit to losing their temper more often than men, the survey found. Three out of 10 women (30%) feel they are more angry this year, compared to 24% of male respondents.
Angus Reid conducted the online survey of 1,005 randomly selected adults between March 31 and April 1. The mar-gin of error for the total sample is 3.1%, 19 times out of 20.
