Dion Attack Ad Hurts Harper More in
June 6, 2007
(Angus Reid Global Monitor) - A television spot authorized by the Conservative party which questions Liberal leader Stéphane Dion has affected the views of Canadians on their prime minister, according to a poll by Angus Reid Strategies. 33 per cent of respondents say their opinion of Conservative leader Stephen Harper has worsened, while 24 per cent feel the same way about Dion.
The survey allowed respondents to watch the advertisement in their computers through an embedded video link. The television spot claims Dion "can’t even get his own Liberal senators to pass a bill limiting Senate terms." 47 per cent of respondents think the ad is not a fair and accurate representation of Dion.
