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/.
