FOR THE FIRST TIME in decades, Canadians are more likely to hold a negative view of the U.S. than positive.
It didn’t happen overnight says Doug Saunders:
“It is not a subtle drift – Canadians were overwhelmingly positive about the United States as recently as 2016, until Donald Trump’s inauguration put a majority into the anti-American column. The proportion of Canadians who see the United States as “a negative force in today’s world” is now almost 6 in 10, a 12-per-cent rise over 2008, making America by far the most negative country in the eyes of Canadians (Globe and Mail, April 16).”
