Wednesday, February 19, 2014

Toronto, ON – A low-key budget by Finance Minister Jim Flaherty last week in the House of Commons has elicited the type of reaction that one might expect for a budget released during the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi – a shrug and a yawn.

Most (69%) Canadians Disagree that the Senate of Canada Performs a Necessary and Useful Political Function

Thursday, January 02, 2014

Toronto, ON – The Senate of Canada has been in the spotlight unlike ever before, thanks to a $90,000 cheque written by Prime Minister Harper’s former Chief of Staff, Nigel Wright, to Senator Mike Duffy to pay back illegitimate expense claims. Senators Wallin and Brazeau were also the subject of a more in-depth audit by Deloitte, and audits threaten to expand to other Senators. The scandal has derailed any positive messages that highlight the accomplishments of the Harper government and cast the Senate under a dark cloud. Since the scandal, a handful of Senators have resigned, and there are rumours that more could vacate their lifetime appointment. Ipsos’ media partner, CTV, has declared this the top news story of the year.

While the slide of four points is relatively modest, what is more troubling for the Tories is that most Canadians are convinced that the Liberals will some day return to power, having elected a new leader and surged past the Tories, according to Ipsos polls released earlier this year.
