41 % Canadians, 59 % Americans back Iran strike

Ottawa (AFP) Oct 15, 2012


Four in 10 Canadians support a pre-emptive military strike against Iran's nuclear program, according to a poll published Monday.

Canadians surveyed by polling firm Ipsos Reid for the Monk Debates ranked a nuclear-armed Iran as the third greatest global threat, after terrorism and famine.

Americans saw it as their second-greatest concern, behind terrorism, with nearly six in 10 Americans (59 percent) supporting a pre-emptive strike against Iran, compared to 41 percent of Canadians.

Monk Debates will host next month a discussion on how the world should respond to Iran's nuclear ambitions.

The talks organizer Rudyard Griffiths told the daily Globe and Mail: "We're not Americans, we don't have a history of using military power to engage with global problems.

"But in this case there seems to be some more hard-headed realism... maybe Canadians are becoming more comfortable about using their military as a tool to engage in the world."

Ipsos Reid surveyed 1,007 Canadians and 1,002 Americans in the online poll, which is considered accurate within a margin of 3.5 percentage points.
