A new survey shows Canadians across the political spectrum oppose the Khadr deal, and 44% say it will impact their vote in the 2019 election.
Justin Trudeau’s decision to give $10.5 million in taxpayers money to Omar Khadr isn’t sitting well with Canadians.
According to a survey by Campaign Research, a full 60% of Canadians oppose the Khadr deal, while just 21% support it. The remainder are undecided.
Even among Liberal supporters, 49% oppose the deal while just 31% are in favour.
51% of New Democrats, and an overwhelming 83% of Conservatives are against the Khadr payment.
Many say the Khadr payment will impact their vote
Nearly half of survey respondents said Trudeau’s Khadr payment will impact their vote.
21% say it will have “a great deal” of impact on their vote, while 23% say it will have “some” impact.
Meanwhile, 25% say it “wouldn’t have much” of an impact, and 20% say it “wouldn’t have an impact at all.”
Conservatives need to keep hitting the Trudeau government on this
It can be tempting in politics to think that once public opinion is on your side you can move on to another issue. However, considering how short the media cycle has become, the Trudeau Liberals will able to make the disgraceful Khadr payment fade into the background – unless the Conservatives keep hitting the government over and over again on it.
The payment was a total disgrace, and it was totally the responsibility of Trudeau – no matter what deceptive rhetoric he tries to foist upon Canadians.
The Conservatives need to keep bringing it up, and keep reminding Canadians that the government didn’t even want Canadians to know what was done with our taxpayers money. The Trudeau government wanted the terrible payment kept under wraps.
A tough, relentless, and strong message consistently condemning the Khadr payment is the only way to make sure Trudeau doesn’t get away with distracting from his terrible decision.
The elites want to hide their many failures behind political correctness, deception, and manipulation. We need to push back and spread the truth.
That’s why I write.
