We needed a poll to know this? A survey by The Environics Institute of political attitudes in 26 countries in the Americas has found that only 16 per cent of Canadians place “a lot of trust” in Stephen Harper. Pollster Keith Neuman of The Environics Institute says, “In an international context, Harper has a lower level of trust than almost every other national leader in the hemisphere.” Overall, 40,971 people were polled, with samples ranging from 1,412 people in Haiti, 3,009 in Bolivia, to 1,500 in Canada. The full results of the survey will be made public on November 15. The full article is at http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/harper-among-least-trusted-leaders-poll-shows/article5187774/.
Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
