Casinos, landfills and aggregate quarries rank 1, 2, 3 on the list of development proposals Canadians are most likely to oppose in their area, while single- family homes, hospitals, grocery stores and apartments/condos, in that order, are much more acceptable, according to the Saint Index (don’t confuse Saint with saint).

The Saint Index comes from a public opinion survey of 1,223 Canadians by the Saint Consulting Group, a new firm in town with 25 years of experience in the U.K. and U.S. It specializes in winning zoning and land use battles for development proponents.
