According to yesterday’s Globe & Mail, Canadians are none too concerned about strong anti-terrorism legislation. From the Globe (page A4):
only 7 per cent of Canadians believe Ottawa went too far in bringing in a host of measures such as arrest and detention without a warrant. Ms. McLellan [deputy Prime Minister] said 50 per cent of Canadians feel the law struck the right balance, while 41 per cent believe the government should go further. The EKOS survey of 1,015 people is considered accurate to within 3.1 percentage points.
