BERKELEY, Calif., Sept. 27, 2013 /CNW/ - A new survey by the polling firm YouGov reveals that Canadians
are not as opposed as some might think to the ads currently appearing
in Canadian cities calling for a new investigation into the destruction
of World Trade Center Building 7, a 47-story skyscraper that collapsed
into its own footprint late in the afternoon on 9/11
30-second video shown to 510 survey respondents across Canada:
The poll was commissioned by the sponsor of the ads, ReThink911.org, in response to criticism denouncing the ads as "disrespectful," along
with comments made by the Chair of Ottawa's Transit Commission calling
for a review of the transit system's advertising policy. The poll shows
that a majority of Canadians actually side with ReThink911.org in questioning the cause of Building 7's collapse.
The ReThink911 campaign calls for a new investigation into Building 7's
collapse as well as the destruction of the Twin Towers.
