More on an exclusive CBC poll "Stay or Go", where we look at what keeps Quebecers here and what drives us to leave. The CBC poll was conducted by Ekos Research, which interviewed 2,020 Quebecers.
Today, we looked at response from our listeners who are staunchly in the "Stay" category. Among them was a call from David Northcliffe, who lives in Birchton, just outside of Cookshire-Eaton in the Eastern Townships.
We also hear from two people in the Baie des Chaleurs region: Wendy Dawson and Shino Muraki. We first met Shino Muraki during our special broadcast from Cascapedia-St-Jules in January 2013. You can hear what she had to say about making her life in Caplan, Quebec here.
