Canada should boycott the 2022 Olympics in Beijing
According to a new survey conducted by the Angus Reid Institute, the majority of Canadians say that Canadian athletes, coaches and fans should boycott the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing.

The poll was framed in light of Canada’s relationship with China given the ongoing detention of Canadians Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor (aka the two Michaels). The poll also addressed China’s treatment of Uighur Muslims and the perception that the Chinese government hasn’t offered an honest account of what happened during the COVID-19 outbreak.

56% of respondents believe that Canada should boycott the Olympics in Beijing, scheduled to run from Feb. 4–20, 2022. When looking at the results by party affiliation, it is clear that Conservative and Bloc voters are more likely to support a boycott of the Olympics in China than Liberal and NDP voters.
