In a recent survey (conducted by Angus Reid Strategies), it was discovered that almost 60% of Canadians said the economy has not affected this entertainment this year, people just seem to be cutting back elsewhere and aren’t willing to part with movies like Harry Potter. Because their choice of entertainment seems to be primarily movies and DVDs! In case you are wondering, reading Mike’s Bloggity Blog came in at a strong #1384, tied with trying to chew your own toe-nails. Solid effort.
In the survey there were some interesting numbers:
  • 23% of maritimers choose going to the movies as their main source of entertainment
  • Only 12% of BC chooses the movies, but I’m pretty sure pot is legal there isn’t?
  • 1 in 5 Canadians would prefer to have a “pop corn” dinner over a gourmet meal.
  • Canadians pick salty snacks over sweet three to one. I’m guessing that’s because not everyone has enjoyed the amazement of Whoppers.
  • 40% of Canadian use loyalty reward programs like, my personal favorite, SCENE.
This survey had some pretty cool stats attached to it, I was mostly impressed with the fact that Canadians are slowly catching on to some of the solid reward programs out there. Seriously if you sneak in a pop, share a popcorn, use your scene card for a free movie, the whole night is cheaper than you might think. Especially if you make your date pay, but use your card!
