Polling questions

Steve Outhouse and Geoff Meeker wonder who's behind a poll on the ABC campaign.

There's been a lot of wondering about polls in this corner in the past few years.

Like, for instance, who commissioned for the poll, conducted ca. 2005, which asked respondents questions about Newfoundland and Labrador separating from Canada?

If it had been a media poll, it would have been reported on: that's why media outlets commission polls.

If it had been a federal government poll, it would have been proactively disclosed.

A provincial government poll would have been released under Access to Information laws by now.

Who polled the population on separation from Canada, in the middle of a bitter federal-provincial dispute over equalization?

And why?
