Poll suggests 29 per cent of Canadians believe 9-11 myth, more than U.S.

In the Canadian Press Harris-Decima survey, conducted this summer in the United States and Canada, 29 per cent of Canadian respondents said they believed some of the hijackers accessed the U.S. through Canada eight years ago.

Only 19 per cent of American respondents agreed.

The data flies in the face of conventional wisdom among many Canadians that the 9-11 myth prevails because of ignorance on behalf of their U.S. neighbours.

Janet Napolitano, Obama's homeland security secretary, fanned the flames of Canadian indignation earlier this year when she suggested she believed the myth to be true as she reviewed Canada-U.S. border policy.
