When asked about reopening the death penalty issue, Harper said that he doesn't "see the country wanting to do that."Well it seems that most Canadians agree with PMSH in a poll that the Sun Media had conducted after the interview.
"I personally think there are times where capital punishment is appropriate," Harper said, but added that he has "no plans to bring that issue forward."
It turns out such a bill would garner more support than Harper's Conservatives currently do in the polls.Where does Iffy Waffle personally stand on this issue? Has the great Peter Mansbridge or any so called journalist actually asked him?
Over the weekend, Ottawa’s Abacus Data found that 66% of Canadians agree with Harper and support the death penalty “in certain circumstances,” but only 41% want the feds to bring back it back a punishment for murder.
The largest group, 41%, said they agreed with the death penalty in certain circumstances and believe the government should reinstate it, while 25% said they support the death penalty but do not believe it should be reinstated.
Total opposition to the death penalty came in at 28%, and another 7% were undecided.
