Which Leader Do You Trust With Your Life or Money?

Compas research asked who do you trust with your life and finances.  Guess who came out on top.
Trust a politician with your money or your life?
Canadians were asked which national political leader would they put faith in to, say, manage their family finances.
"Which one would make the best judge in a law court dealing with criminals? If a young friend of yours were serving with the armed forces in a battlefield in Afghanistan, which one of these leaders would you have preferred as unit commander in charge?" the COMPAS Research poll asked.
The clear choice for battlefield commander went to Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who drew 56% of the support, compared to 14% for Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff and 18% for NDP Leader Jack Layton.
Harper was also deemed the better money manager and the best criminal court judge, although about one in four thought the nod should go to Layton.
Another 10% believe Bloc Quebecois Leader Gilles Duceppe could be trusted to manage their money.
Pollster Conrad Winn said he found this part of the poll fascinating.
"Family savings, you could say, is kind of a stand in for managing the economy," he said.
No surprise for me!   It's actually a no brainer. Stephen Harper has proven to be someone who you CAN trust with your finances.  Look how he steered us through the deepest recession in eighty years.

Trust him with your life,you betcha!  He's changing the criminal justice system to make our streets safer and providing our military with the proper equipment they need to protect our sovereignty and keep us safe from those who wish to do us harm.

He's strong,decisive,shows real leadership and represents us very well in the world so why change the commander in the middle of  the uncertain times that we are facing in the world? 

Stephen Harper all the way!  Let's keep him as Prime Minister and give him a majority!  He's the real deal!


  1. His performance last night will win this election for us I think. Even party supporters who've been kind of down on the moderation of fiscal conservative values will feel energized by last night's debate and come out. That's my feeling anyway as one of the people who's a little disappointed in the necessary moderation of fiscal conservative values in order to win. I've been volunteering still anyway and all that but I will redouble my efforts to get the vote out now.

  2. One thing what's in the mind of canadians is how well the PM and Flaherty and conservatives handled the recession, and the recovery.
    Canadians ask themselves why an election the economy is great canada is the best, we are regarded with respect internationally so what's the problem here?

    Layton makes remarks about Ignatieff lack of presence in the HOC, but, although Jack may be in the HOC, how many bills has he voted on and how many budgets he voted on so you see it makes no difference who was or wasn't in HOC because Layton and party imo have not been there either.
    This budget alone had a lot of stuff Layton wanted and instead of voting for the Budget, Layton decided....AGAIN for the upteen times to vote against the Budget.Yet, he is putting us through a $300million election while campaigning on the very same budget he ignored to support.

    I would sooner put my trust on the conservatives to handle this country. the others gave us a preview of who what where they stand for and wants us to be and go and that to me is not a 'BRIGHT FUTURE' one bit.

  3. Stephen Harper as Prime Minister makes me feel safe and comfortable.
    Lets give this home grown Canadian a majority.

  4. Stephen Harper as Prime Minister makes me feel safe and comfortable.
    Lets give this home grown Canadian a majority.

    Amen,Fay! Let's continue working hard for that objective and don't take anything for granted! Still a lot of work to do but we CAN do it!


This is my home. I hope you respect it. I will not tolerate profanity or anything that is not suitable for family consumption.
