Haligonians not so resistant to change

Posted by SOSA Webteam on April 4, 2018 in News

SOSA sociologist Dr. Howard Ramos was interviewed on CBC Radio's Information Morning as well as Global News about the findings of his recent research. In a bid to find out what changes Atlantic Canadians perceive in their neighbourhoods and cities and how they feel about them, Dr. Ramos led a large-scale survey of residents of Halifax, Moncton, Charlottetown and St. John's. It turns out that Haligonians notice new construction most of all, and they feel quite positive about it. However, affordability is a significant concern.
