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.
