Canadians are very optimistic about an economic recovery, according to a new poll.

A new Canadian Press Harris-Decima survey of 1,000 Canadians found six in 10 of them think the economy will bounce back at least twice as strongly as it will in the United States.

"We wanted to see: Are Canadians feeling that good about how things are? And what the data told us is, 'Yes, they are,'" said Jeff Walker, vice-president at Harris-Decima.
