Quebec is the only province in Canada watching more hockey this year: poll

Ontario hockey fans are watching significantly less, despite how well the Leafs are doing this season.

A new survey by the Angus Reid Institute has examined Canadians’ reactions to the new all-Canadian division in this year’s NHL season. While roughly half of the respondents (48%) claim to be watching the same amount of hockey as when the season first started in January, the remaining respondents were more likely to be watching less (30%), than more (21%). Quebec was the only province whose respondents were watching more hockey (27%), than less (26%).

Oddly enough, Ontario was the province with the largest percentage of respondents watching less NHL hockey (34%), which comes as a surprise since the Toronto Maple Leafs are currently first place in the entire league.
