New Poll -- 63% of Canadians Believe U.S. Had Prior Knowledge of 9/11 Attacks and Did Nothing

Most Canadians believe the U.S. Government knew that the attacks of September 11, 2001 were coming -- and did not act to prevent them, a poll released today indicates. When asked about the following statement, 63% of Canadians agreed that "Individuals within the U.S. Government including the White House had prior knowledge of the plans for the events of September 11th, and failed to take appropriate action to stop them".

Additionally, 16% of Canadians believe that individuals within the U.S. Government were involved in the planning and execution of the events of September 11th.

The country is more or less split on whether the Canadian Government was right in using the events of 9/11 to justify legislation which limits civil rights. While 50% support the governmentís actions, 44% of Canadians oppose this legislation.

The national poll of Canadians was commissioned by and was conducted by Maritz: Thompson Lightstone, a national survey research firm. is a Canadian public interest group which does not accept the U.S. Governmentís version of what happened on 9/11. This group is sponsoring the International Citizensí Inquiry Into 9/11, being held in Toronto next week -- May 25 - 30.

Barrie Zwicker, Toronto-based Director of the group, said "These poll results show just how skeptical Canadians are of the official 9/11 story. And they are concerned about the effect the so-called ëWar on Terrorí is having on civil liberties in our country. And we know that all of this arises out of 9/11."

"That is why we are conducting the Citizensí Inquiry Into 9/11 in Toronto," Zwicker continued. "The wide range of speakers and panels at the Inquiry will fully air these important issues."

The Canada- wide poll was conducted between May 6 and May 11, 2004 with a national sample of 750 people. The poll is considered accurate to within 3.58 per cent, 19 times out of 20.
