Reports Ipsos-Reid Corp. is currently canvassing British Columbians for their opinions on provincial politics have been somewhat exaggerated. The Vancouver-based polling firm won't actually be in the field until later this week. In addition to asking British Columbians who they'd vote for if an election were held today, company public affairs vice-president Kyle Braid told Public Eye he's making a decision today on whether to include a question about the new Conservative party. The results of that survey will be made public sometime after September 20. Mr. Braid also confirmed Ipsos-Reid will be in the field for a more extensive pre-election poll in the first week of December. Unfortunately, he nixed the idea of dressing up as Santa Clause to release that survey.
