Reply to "Ontario Survey"

FYI, the Abacus survey linked above is unrelated to the 'consultation' done by the provincial government; it just happened to be conducted at the same time. Abacus appears to have conducted their survey in a fairly rigorous fashion:

Our survey was conducted online with 800 Ontarians aged 18 and over from January 11 to 14, 2019. A random sample of panelists was invited to complete the survey from a set of partner panels based on the Lucid exchange platform. These partners are double opt-in survey panels, blended to manage out potential skews in the data from a single source.

The margin of error for a comparable probability-based random sample of the same size is +/- 3.5%, 19 times out of 20. The data were weighted according to census data to ensure that the sample matched Ontario’s population according to age, gender, educational attainment, and region. Totals may not add up to 100 due to rounding.

As we know, the government's version was done using  the exact opposite methodology:

We threw up a link and didn't care how many times anyone filled it out because if it returns answers we don't agree with, we will simply say the data was heavily tainted by unnamed 'special interest groups' and do whatever the f*ck we wanted with liquor sales in Ontario anyway.
