Of course we do

"Canadians reject PM's abortion stand: poll." The Master Tactician's judgment is off yet again:
A new poll suggests that a majority of Canadians opposes the Prime Minister's refusal to fund safer abortions in developing countries, even as international concern grows about the state of his G8 maternal health initiative.

The Canadian Press-Harris Decima poll found that 58 per cent of respondents oppose Harper's exclusion of abortion funding in his drive to improve maternal and child health in poor countries.

That's up from about 46 per cent in March, when a similar question about aid for abortion access was asked.
Yay, Canada. Now the question is whether Mr. Harper will represent the views of Canadians or his base as this initiative goes forward?
