Barely one in four Canadians have faith in former governor general David Johnston’s credibility and impartiality as special rapporteur on foreign interference, a new poll by Léger for National Post shows, while nearly half are unimpressed with the Liberal government’s general handling of the foreign interference issue.
Just 27 per cent of survey respondents said they believe Johnston’s recent report recommending against a public inquiry into foreign interference was based on either “rigorous impartial work” or “foreign policy expertise.” Johnston has been under fire from opposition parties over his qualifications as special rapporteur, including his ties to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Trudeau family foundation, which is at the centre of some foreign-influence allegations.
