The latest Senate report card from the people of Canada has arrived. A new survey completed by Nanos Research suggests that Canadians are not yet convinced that the current Senate has made a huge difference.
According to the survey, only a quarter of Canadians have a positive or somewhat positive impression of senators. That’s hardly a number to boast about and remains unchanged compared with two years ago — even with the advent of a greater role for independent senators. The only significant change from the previous poll is an 8 percent shift away from “negative” responses into the “unsure” category.
