Non-freeped poll shows 2/3 support Morgentaler appointment

When all is said and done, when the freeping's finished and the fat lady's sung, the truth will always win out.

A recent NON-FREEPED CanWest survey showed that 2/3 -- that's TWO-THIRDS, 66%, .66, or 2 out of 3 -- of Canadians support Dr. Henry Morgentaler's appointment to the Order of Canada:
"Two out of three Canadians either support or somewhat support the appointment of Dr. Henry Morgentaler to the prestigious Order of Canada, reveals a new poll, which points out Prime Minister Stephen Harper is in the minority by voicing his "personal dissatisfaction" with the controversial nomination.

The survey, conducted exclusively for Canwest News Service and Global National, showed 65 per cent of Canadians favour awarding the high honour to the Toronto abortion doctor, while 35% are against it.

"Two-thirds support is very solid," John Wright, senior vice president of the polling firm Ipsos Reid, which surveyed 1,023 adults from July 4-7. "You're not going to do much better than that."" (emphasis delightedly mine)

This poll is of particular significance when you consider who commissioned it -- editorially, Canwest Global has been more opposed to the appointment. Which goes to show that the smirking anti-choice media elites don't speak for the people of Canada -- not only is Canada a solidly pro-choice nation, but we also believe in rewarding those responsible for making us that way.

The only question now is whether Bill Wartcott will be sending Canwest a package...

UPDATE: And speaking of negative Canwest editorials, it's a nice day for a fisking...
