U.S. Image Improves In Canada


Peace arch straddles the U.S./Canadian border

As in much of the world, America's image has bounced back in Canada according to a Pew Global Attitudes survey.

Positive ratings for the United States have become more common, and President Obama receives considerably higher marks than George W. Bush did when he was in the White House.

Even so, as Obama prepares to meet with visiting Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, many Canadians say that the U.S. economy is having a negative impact on their country and many disagree with Obama on one of his top foreign policy priorities: the war in Afghanistan.

It's good to see the US recovering from the Bush regime. 99 out of 100 people said they hate the US under Bush's reign. Finally people are starting to see over the stupid stereotypes and see it as a normal country with normal people and their culture. Good job Mr. Obama on changing the view on the States in the world.

Take care, Elli
