Federal Cabinet Ratings: A happy new year for Freeland; Hussen, Sohi face cold winter ahead
    Files Trudeau government has found itself vulnerable on take toll on ministers responsible for them

December 14, 2018 –  While members of the federal cabinet prepare to escape the political and literal biting cold of Ottawa during the winter break, some will leave Parliament Hill feeling more festive than others.

The second annual public opinion survey from the Angus Reid Institute canvassing Canadian opinion on the performance of the Trudeau government’s cabinet finds some, such as Minister of Foreign Affairs Chrystia Freeland and Minister of Transport Marc Garneau, riding high once more.

With 49 per cent of Canadians saying she has done a ‘good job’ this year, Freeland’s performance score of +20 (the percentage of those saying “good job” less those saying “bad job”) is the highest among her peers.

Others, such as Minister of Natural Resources Amarjeet Sohi and Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Ahmed Hussen – receive far less credit from the Canadian public.

Sohi, a key figure in the TransMountain tumult of 2018, receives a -36 – ten points worse than anyone else.

I'm kind of surprised with the detailed results by age, gender, region, etc.  I was sure that there would be a clear split based on assumed knuckle-dragger/tree-hugger demographics (for example, with Goodale & Blair either saving us from 'others' or pilloried as evil oppressors), but there are pretty solid trends across gender, income, education, etc.

One notable point is that "Good Job" ratings declined across all Ministers as respondents aged.... damn curmudgeons;  why don't they just die off.  ;D  (Well that, and respondents from BC don't know who anyone is  ;) )
There’s nothing more maddening than debating someone who doesn’t know history, doesn’t read books, and frames their myopia as virtue. The level of unapologetic conjecture I’ve encountered lately isn’t just frustrating, it’s retrogressive, unprecedented, and absolutely terrifying.

You sure you aren’t RCR? Does the data always have to square?

I've been called several things, but no one has ever  taken me for a rock-painter.   ;D
