Posted on Friday, May 19, 2017 06:01 AM

Corporate Research Associates has done another poll on how residents of Greater Moncton feel about amalgamation.

The results show 59 percent of residents support the idea of Moncton, Riverview and Dieppe as one municipality.

The figure is virtually the same as the last time this poll was conducted in November.

However, the numbers break down differently in each of the tri-communities.

In Riverview, 50 percent of residents support the idea, compared to 64 percent in Moncton and 65 percent in favour in Dieppe.

CRA surveyed 400 adults in the region over a recent two week period.
