BRAMPTON, ON, Nov. 19, 2018 /CNW/ - The holidays are approaching and although it's the most magical time of the year, it can also be the most stressful one.

About the Loblaw Companies Limited Survey:
From October 17th to October 18th 2018 an online survey of 1,525 randomly selected Canadian adults who are Maru Voice Canada panelists was executed by Maru/Blue. For comparison purposes, a probability sample of this size has an estimated margin of error (which measures sampling variability) of +/- 2.5%, 19 times out of 20. The results have been weighted by education, age, gender and region (and in Quebec, language) to match the population, according to Census data. This is to ensure the sample is representative of the entire adult population of Canada. Discrepancies in or between totals are due to rounding.
