Canadians not buying stephen harper's torture cover-up

Posted by Christian  |  at  25.11.09

A Canadian Press Harris-Decima poll reveals that Canadians are siding with Richard Colvin over harper and his thugs, by a margin of 2:1.
Fifty-one per cent of respondents said they believe Colvin's testimony to the committee last week.

In stark contrast, only 25 per cent said they believe the government's contention that the diplomat's claims are flimsy and not credible.

Those who identified themselves as supporters of Prime Minister Stephen Harper's Conservatives were most inclined to give the government the benefit of the doubt. But even they were almost evenly split, with 40 per cent buying the government's take on the issue and 34 per cent buying Colvin's.
Another positive statistic, is that 70 per cent of respondents said it's unacceptable that Canadian forces would hand over prisoners if it's likely they'll be tortured.


  1. The 25% who disbelieve Colvin are likely Harper's base who will support him regardless.

    I would suspect that of the 30% who did not find it unacceptable to hand over prisoners if the possibility of torture exists, the majority of them would again come from this base support.

    These data probably shows quite clearly that Harper's base remains in the region of 25-30% voters, assuming that this poll was unbiased.

  2. Hey Anon, I tend to agree with your hypothesis. In any given community it seems that 25/30 percent are irrational.
