Now that Canada has its most LGBTQ-friendly prime minister, Justin Trudeau, is it possible that the country elects its first openly gay prime minster in the near future?
In a poll by Abacus Data, 56% of the 1,500 adult respondents said that it’s likely that Canada’s going to elect a gay PM within the next decade, while 58% said it could happen within 20 years.
Abacus chairman Bruce Anderson said that the numbers ‘signal at least some confidence that bias-based barriers to high office are limited and possibly reducing over time.’
Other results showed that 44% of Canadians think that it is possible for the country to have a Muslim leader within the next 10 years.
Also, nearly half of the people (46%) believe that women will have more power and influence than men in the country in the next decade.
