MONTREAL, May 25, 2004 ( – Almost 60 percent of Canadians believe that so-called homophobia is at least as offensive as being racist. A Leger Marketing poll revealed 58 percent of respondents Canada-wide would say racism was equivalent to “homophobia,” ranging from 47 percent in Alberta, to 65 percent in British Columbia.

The same poll revealed that only 43 percent of Canadians favour same-sex “marriage.”

The poll did not define the term “homophobia.” The question asked by pollsters was: “Personally, do you think that being homophobic is worse than being racist or anti-Semitic; as bad as being racist or anti-Semitic; or not as bad as being racist or anti-Semitic?” according to the Canadian Press.
