Vancouver Canucks Elias Pettersson and Brock Boeser celebrate a game-winning goal in 2019. Fans are welcome back in the stands but a poll shows North Vancouver and West Vancouver residents are leery to return.

Fans are welcome back for Canucks games at Rogers Arena and Bryan Adams is planning a New Year's Eve concert - but don't expect to find a lot of North Shore residents filling the stands.

The vast majority of North Vancouver and West Vancouver residents say they are not prepared to return to high-capacity events in light of ongoing COVID-19 risk, according to a recent poll.

North Shore News polled 1443 North Shore News readers and asked the question: Would you be comfortable attending high-capacity events like concerts and Canucks games?

The poll ran from Oct. 20 to Oct. 28 on our website. Of the 1443 votes, we can determine that 531 are from within the community. The full results are as follows:

Yes, as long as vaccines are mandatory for everyone inside, it will be fine. 26.55 % local, 34.72 % total    
No, this is a premature step when the Delta variant is still spreading. 54.24 % local, 47.61 % total    
I don't mind if other people fill a theatre, but I won't be going. 19.21 % local, 17.67 % total    
  Local   Total

Results are based on an online study of adult North Shore News readers who are located in North and West Vancouver. The margin of error - which measures sample variability - is +/- 2.57%, 19 times out of 20.
