Alberta Provincial Issues Poll – March 28, 2022

March 28, 2022

From March 18-20, 2022, Leger conducted an online survey of Albertans to explore their opinions on several provincial issues, including Jason Kenney’s leadership and:

  • whether they feel the province is headed in the right or wrong direction
  • their voting intentions (and their hypothetical voting intentions if Brian Jean was the leader of the UCP)
  • the actions they plan to take given the loosening of COVID-19 restrictions
  • and more


  • 50% of Albertans believe Alberta is heading in the wrong direction.
  • 58% of Albertans think Jason Kenney should resign as premier and leader of the UCP.
  • Decided voters are favouring the NDP (44%) over the UCP (35%).
  • Hypothetically, if Brian Jean were the leader of the UCP and a provincial election was held today, 31% of Albertans would vote for the UCP and 31% would vote for the NDP.
  • 36% of Albertans think the Government of Alberta lifted the province’s COVID-19 restrictions too soon, 27% think the restrictions were lifted at the right time and 24% think the restrictions were lifted too late.
  • Two weekends ago, the police in Calgary forcibly used their bicycles to separate two groups of protesters on the Beltline. 32% of Albertans think the use of force by the police was reasonable or justified, 25% think it was not and 41% are not familiar with the incident.


  • A total of n=1,002 online surveys were conducted among Albertans aged 18 or older via Leger’s LEO panel.
  • The survey was conducted from March 18-20, 2022, using computer-assisted web interviewing (CAWI) technology.
  • As a non-random internet survey, a margin of error is not reported. If the data were collected through a random sample, the margin of error for a sample size of n=1,002 would be ±3.1%, 19 times out of 20.
  • Using data from the 2016 Census, results were weighted according to age, gender, and region in order to ensure a representative sample of the population.
