Majority of Canadians also distrust their government

Apparently, the tide of populist anger sweeping the Western world has now reached Canada.

According to the result of a recent poll, “only 43 per cent of Canadians say they trust their government — down from 53 per cent a year earlier” — and “80 per cent of Canadians feel the country’s elites are out of touch.”

“Author and journalist Susan Delacourt says Prime Minister Justin Trudeau should be really concerned. This spike in distrust and cynicism is the same sentiment that propelled Donald Trump to the White House, and it is gaining ground here.”

Canada, of all places. Who would’ve thought?
