Martin's Miscue

According to a SES poll only half of Canadians are even aware of the existence of the notwithstanding clause.

Wasn't this clause supposed to be the big issue for Paul Martin and the Liberals in the last election?

No wonder he lost.

Politics 101 lesson: If you have to explain an issue to voters, then it's not a good issue to run on.

I think on most issues half of Canadians are unaware. I think this can easily be de-bunked by the fact those 50% are largely those who don't vote in the first place.

The good thing for you guys and BTW I support it too, is there is strong support for including property rights. I think the Liberals decision to slam this was the stupidest of all. Trying to pander to left wing special interest groups doesn't win you elections, appealing to the broad centre does.
