More than half of Canadians surveyed don't think they are better off financially than they were a year ago, according to a poll released Wednesday.

And 63% of respondents to the Ipsos Reid survey are concerned that Canada's economy will be further hurt by the impact of the U.S. "fiscal cliff," the looming budgetary crisis brought about by tax increases and spending cuts slated to go into effect in the new year.
