Ottawans polled on strike

From the Ottawa Citizen (emphasis ours):
Ottawa Council went into private session Tuesday morning to talk about the near month-long strike by its transit workers.

Councillors were to be briefed about the city’s strategy in the strike by 2,300 members of the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 279, who have been off work since Dec. 10.

One item council was to hear about is the result of a poll of Ottawa citizens about the labour dispute.

And now all Ottawa media simultaneously salivate at the prospect of a professional poll with some -- any -- information about the public perception of the strike.

Any guesses at the findings?

UPDATE: The Ottawa Sun has (a little) more on the polling:
The Sun has learned that Jeff Walker, senior vice-president of public opinion/research firm Harris/Decima, is at council and is expected to release the details of a poll taken across the city over the last couple of weeks.
