One poll was conducted amongst Canadians by the firm
Leger Marketing for the Association for Canadian Studies
on the week ending 2010-09-07, asking respondents
across Canada if they ''strongly agree", "somewhat agree",
"somewhat disagree" or "strongly disagree'' on the following
question “Overall how much trust and confidence do you
have in the following to do a good job?”
Armed Forces/Military
Federal Government (in Canada and the United States)
and National Government (in Germany and Spain)

This report presents the findings in Canada of the survey
conducted among a sample of an average of 1,707 adults
comprising 825 men and 882 women 18 years of age and
older and is a demographically representative national
sample.

In addition, the ACS contracted reputable polling
companies in the United States, Spain and Germany to run
the same battery of questions with a similar,
representative sample size (of 1000 persons) in order to
run cross-national comparisons on the issue at hand.
