Poll: One third of qathet region respondents use sea walk frequently

Just under 45 per cent walk the popular trail occasionally
City of Powell River crews recently repaired the sea walk after it was battered by high winds and significant tides.

The Peak polled 537 readers and asked the question: How often do you use the sea walk?

The popular trail had been damaged during high northwest wind conditions and high tides earlier in January.

The poll ran from 1/19/2022 to 1/28/2022. Of the 537 votes, we can determine that 298 are from within the community. The full results are as follows:

Frequently 34.23 % local, 32.59 % total    
Once in a while 44.30 % local, 41.15 % total    
Never 21.48 % local, 26.07 % total    
  Local   Total

Results are based on an online study of Peak readers who are located in the qathet region. The margin of error - which measures sample variability - is +/- 4.14%, 19 times out of 20.

The Peak uses a variety of techniques to capture data, detect and prevent fraudulent votes, detect and prevent robots, and filter out non-local and duplicate votes.
