Transcript: TVO's butter tart survey results | Aug 16, 2017

(music plays)

A clip shows a butter tart on a red plate with the caption "A Buttery Divide."

Daniels sits at his desk. He’s in his mid-forties, clean-shaven and with short straight gray hair. He wears glasses and a short-sleeved patterned blue and white shirt.

He says HI,
MY NAME'S DANIEL KITTS,
AND I'M DOING
SOCIAL MEDIA FOR
TVO'S DIGITAL TEAM
TODAY.
YESTERDAY, WE PUBLISHED
AN ARTICLE ABOUT BUTTER TARTS,
A FAMOUS ONTARIO TREAT.
AND WE DECIDED
AT THE SAME TIME
TO ASK OUR SOCIAL MEDIA
FOLLOWERS THAT AGE OLD QUESTION,

A caption reads "Do you prefer your butter tarts with raisins or without raisins?"

David says AND WE NOW HAVE
SOME RESULTS TO REPORT.
ON TWITTER,
THE POLL JUST CLOSED,
AND...
ANTI-RAISIN CAME OUT FIRST
WITH 44 PERCENT.
FOLLOWED BY
PRO-RAISIN AT 36 PERCENT,
AND RAISIN AGNOSTIC
AT 20 PERCENT.
IF WE GO TO FACEBOOK,
THE RESULTS ARE
SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT,
BUT ANTI-RAISINS
STILL COME OUT AHEAD,
THEY ARE AT 37 PERCENT.
PRO-RAISINS ARE
NOT FAR BEHIND AT 34,
AND, "I DON'T REALLY CARE,
JUST GIVE ME A BUTTER TART."
IS AT 29 PERCENT.
AS IF WE WERE IN A
FIRST-PAST-THE-POST SYSTEM,
ANTI-RAISINS WOULD FORM THE
GOVERNMENT,
AND IN FACT,
MIGHT EVEN BE ABLE TO
FORM A
MAJORITY GOVERNMENT.
HOWEVER, IN A PROPORTIONAL
REPRESENTATION SYSTEM,
IT'S POSSIBLE THAT PRO-RAISINS
AND RAISIN-AGNOSTIC
COULD FORM A COALITION
AND DEFEAT ANTI-RAISINS, SO.
TO BUTTER TARTS.

He eats a butter tart and says OH.
DOES THIS ONE
HAVE RAISINS IN IT?
I HATE RAISINS.
