I really do hope these figures are correct. As George Bush heads for Ottowa, the Wall Street Journal (subscriber-only) applauds the work of the Canadian pressure group, Friends of America:
" According to poll results released yesterday, some 71% of Canadians identify the U.S. as their country's closest friend. In addition, 60% say they have "positive" feelings about America, while a further 25% say their feelings are "somewhat positive" -- adding up to a grand total of 85% with good vibes about the U.S. The main reason given for the close ties is trade and economic relations.
The poll was commissioned by the non-profit Friends of America, itself a name to take note of. Friends of America says it is "funded by ordinary Canadians who want to strengthen the friendship between our countries and are tired of watching Canada being labeled anti-American because of a vocal minority."
