Basket full of lemons and they all taste the same

I find this poll by CTV and Strategic Counsel quite curious. It would appear that the Conservatives are on the wrong side of all the issues Canadians hold dear.

If you look at these results its hard to understand what the current government is thinking and even worse they have completely wasted 31 million dollars in polling firms since they have done exactly opposite of what this poll turned up.

* 1/3 Canadians says that climate change is the biggest threat facing the world today
* 39 per cent think that Canada's foreign policy is less independent than 50 years ago
* 25 per cent believe that Canada's relationship with U.S. is the major factor influencing domestic foreign policy today
* Only 5 per cent say that the Canada-U.S. relationship should be the major factor influencing Canadian foreign policy today
* 33 per cent believe saying 'no' to involvement in Iraq is Canada's greatest foreign policy achievement
* 10 per cent say signing NAFTA was the greatest foreign policy achievement while another 10 per cent say it's the current mission in Afghanistan

The Conservatives have
* Screwed us all on the climate change file, killed what programs that were in place and working and made us a global laughing stock
* The Conservatives have tied us to American foreign policy which influencing our actions on everything. Even selling out our softwood industry.
* Conservatives wish we were in Iraq
* Claim the Afghanistan mission is our defining role currently in the world to no other and not too mention the abandonment of our peacekeeping role. Where was the commemoration for Lester B. Pearson's Peace Prize?

Very sour indeed. Recommend this Post
