A majority of Ontarians disapprove of Premier Kathleen Wynne, according to a new poll which measures national and provincial approval ratings of Canada’s premiers.

The Mainstreet/Postmedia poll finds Wynne has the lowest approval of all 10 provincial premiers, both on a national and provincial level.

Seventy per cent of those surveyed in Ontario disapprove of Wynne while nationally, 48 percent disapprove of her. That is just slightly ahead of Quebec premier Philippe Couillard at 47 percent.

Ironically Couillard, along with Alberta premier Rachel Notley, enjoys the highest approval rating nationally, at 45 percent.

The poll also finds Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s approval rating is at 54 percent across Canada. His strongest support comes from New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Quebec while he scored the lowest in Saskatchewan and Alberta.
