Widespread satisfaction with the emergency response to the recent NB flooding event

  • Three-quarters of New Brunswickers are satisfied with the emergency response to the recent flooding event in the province
  • One in eight residents are dissatisfied with the emergency response to the May 2018 flood
  • Residents in northern New Brunswick are less likely than those elsewhere in the province to be dissatisfied with the emergency response

HALIFAX, NS June 21, 2018: A strong majority of residents are satisfied with the emergency response to the May 2018 flooding event in New Brunswick, according to the most recent survey conducted by Corporate Research Associates Inc.

Specifically, three-quarters (77%) of New Brunswick residents are completely or mostly satisfied with the emergency response to the recent flooding event in the province, while one in eight (13%) New Brunswickers are completely or mostly dissatisfied with the emergency response. One in ten (11%) residents do not know or do not have an opinion on the matter. While there is solid majority satisfaction across the province, residents in northern New Brunswick express less dissatisfaction (6%) than those elsewhere (16%).

“Despite the devastating floods that hit New Brunswick this spring, residents in the province appear to be satisfied with the emergency response to those floods,” said Don Mills, Chairman and CEO of Corporate Research Associates. “At the same time, there remains a lot of restoration work to be completed in the areas directly affected by the floods.”

These results are part of the CRA Atlantic Quarterly®, an independent, quarterly telephone survey of Atlantic Canadians, and are based on a telephone sample of 400 adult New Brunswickers, conducted from May 10 to 28, 2018, with overall results accurate to within ± 4.9 percentage points, 95 out of 100 times.
