Students from the University of Northern B.C. want to know what impacts people feel the 2015 Canada Winter Games had on Prince George.
A political science class is conducting a survey this week at a number of locations around the city.
“It should only take about five minutes,” project lead Grant Bachand says. “We’d like you to do the survey here, because it allows us to manage the survey better by keeping track of the survey.”
The survey was scheduled to be done earlier, but the faculty strike at UNBC caused them to push the dates back.
“We may extend the poll into next week,” Bachand says. “We want to see what our numbers are this week. We’re also collecting hard data elsewhere, so this is more an opinion poll to find out people’s perceptions on the impact of the Games.”
He says they are hoping to be able to release the results of the survey in mid-April.
