Here are the results from our latest online poll question

Readers not too keen on passport design changes
We asked about the new design of Canadian passports in one of our latest online polls.

Delta Optimist polled 380 Optimist readers and asked the question: The new passport design features images of nature and daily life, instead of Canadian history. What do you think of it?

The poll ran from May 23 to 31. Of the 380 votes, we can determine that 151 are from within the community. The full results are as follows:

I like the design we have now 42.38 % local, 46.84 % total    
I like the new design 11.92 % local, 13.42 % total    
I don't care what my passport looks like 45.70 % local, 39.74 % total
