Polling (Part 2)

Though post-secondary education does not register as a “major issue” in any of the pre-election polls, the Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT) nonetheless commissioned its own polling on post-secondary education (through Abacus), presumably the better to convince politicians that Canadians really do care about the issue.  The results (here, split across two documents) are…interesting, though possibly not for reasons CAUT would want.
