How the USA is viewed by Canadians ....

Quoted from the article:

A new survey suggests Canadians increasingly view Americans as "rude, greedy and violent."

Only 59 per cent of Canadians have a favourable view of the United States, down from 72 per cent in 2002. France, Germany and Japan all ranked much higher."

Interestingly, the USA sees itself in a similar fashion or even worse:

Seventy per cent of Americans view themselves as greedy, which is higher than any other country surveyed. And while 34 per cent of Canadians see Americans as immoral, 39 per cent of Americans also see themselves the same way.

ANTI-US sentiment is firmly entrenched around the world, mainly because of President George W Bush and his policies, to such a degree even US humanitarian efforts do little to curb it, according to a poll released today.

The latest Pew Global Attitudes survey report revealed negative attitudes about the United States, are so strong even among traditional allies such as the French and Canadians, US aid to tsunami victims or Mr Bush's encouragement of democracy in the Middle East have done little to blunt them.

The report cited the re-election of Mr Bush in November and the continuing war in Iraq, one of his major policy priorities, as the principal causes of the lingering anti-US feeling.

According to Gallup's annual environment survey, updated Mar. 13-16, 2006, Americans today are more negative about the quality of the environment than in previous years. But they show no corresponding increase in their willingness to make the environment a priority over economic or energy concerns.

Australians top green poll April 23, 2006 11:00 PM,10117,18911326-29277,00.html

AUSTRALIANS get top marks for recycling and their concern over the country's water crisis, a new international poll has found.

Australians are also the most keen recyclers of all the countries, with 89 per cent of Australians recycling at home on a regular basis, compared to the average of 68 per cent.

Australians felt the most significant issue affecting the country was its water crisis, the research also found, with 84 per cent saying they believed the issue was top priority.

This was followed by pollution (59.9 per cent), sustainable energy supply (55.7 per cent), the Greenhouse Effect (52.9 per cent) and nuclear energy (22.9 per cent).

"Germany, by far, environmentally leads the way in a whole number of areas and yet so many of the concerns that the Australians showed were very similar to those expressed by the Germans," Mr Dee said.

"And the German government has been a lot more proactive in respecting the wishes of the German population and their voters."
