A-2014-00001 Here is the information I am asking you to send me: 1. May I have the name and title of the people in charge at your organization who commissioned the poll and organized the release of its results? 2. What decision-making process led to commissioning the poll and releasing its results? 3. Why would one undertake an initiative of this kind? 4. Is this type of exercise only being undertaken in Quebec? I’ve been told that the Quebec poll is part of an “operation” called “Living English” (in Quebec). Is there a parallel operation in the rest of Canada called “Living French”? If so, would you please send me those polls? If not, please tell why there are none. 5. Along the same lines, are there any polls in the rest of Canada that have asked Canadians if they intend to relocate? If so, please send them to me. If not, please tell me why none exist. 6. What is CBC’s mandate? To serve all Canadians, or only Anglophones? In a CBC Editor’s Blog post on February 28, 2014, the blogger Shelagh Kinch, managing director of CBC Quebec, appears to be saying that CBC is only interested in Anglophones. 7. Could I have a copy of the contract, including the mandate (scope of work) and fees, entered into with EKOS for the purposes of this poll? 8. May I have a copy of the minutes of the production committee meeting(s) dealing with this poll and the release of its results? 9. May I have a copy of all email and other correspondence between people at CBC and those at EKOS handling the poll and the release of its results? 10. May I have the complete methodology used for the EKOS poll? 11. I will further specify my questions about methodology: Could I have a copy of the questionnaire sent to respondents and the exact wording of the questions? 12. Could I obtain the text version of the 2,020 poll responses? 13. May I find out how sampling was structured? Were respondents selected at random? Were they taken from a bank of names pre-established by EKOS? 14. Can I find out how the poll was conducted? By telephone? Over the Internet? By mail? Is the system robotic? 15. If a questionnaire was used, in which language was it presented? If respondents were interviewed, which language was used? 16. In Quebec, if we round off the numbers, the language distribution is as follows: Francophones: 79%; Allophones: 13%; and Anglophones: 8%. The sample taken by EKOS was entirely different: Francophones: 50%; Allophones: 11%; and Anglophones: 39%. Could you explain the disparity? 17. In Quebec, Anglophones and Allophones together make up 21% of the population; in your poll, they make up 50%, over two times more; here again, how do you explain the disparity? 18. In her blog post, Shelagh Kinch writes that the sample was split into two groups – 1,007 Anglophones and 1,013 Francophones – rather than three. Does this imply that all Allophones polled were English speakers, and therefore assimilated into the Anglophone community? 19. What is the geographical distribution of poll respondents? Where do they reside in Quebec? 20. What is your definition of Allophone? For instance, Quebec’s largest group of Allophones are Italian speakers – did the sample reflect this reality, i.e., did it factor in Allophone language distribution. 21. In the sample group, what percentage were French-speaking Allophones vs. English-speaking ones? You know what I mean: an Arabic speaker from Pakistan will answer you in English, whereas one hailing from Algeria will be more at ease in French. Does your sample take this reality into account? Is the so-called desire to go live elsewhere at the same level in both groups? Disclosed
