ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - A poll says those closest to Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Danny Williams are most supportive of his trip to the U.S. for heart surgery.
A new Canadian Press/Harris Decima survey found 65 per cent of Atlantic Canadians said Williams's trip south for care was appropriate.
British Columbians were the next most supportive at 52 per cent.
It was a different story in Quebec where just over half of those surveyed said the premier's contentious choice was inappropriate.
Overall, 44 per cent of Canadians supported the premier's decision, while 42 per cent did not.
The telephone survey last week polled just over 2,000 people and has a margin of error of 2.2 per cent, 19 times in 20.
