CANADIAN PREMIERS — HOW THEY’RE DOING

Brad Wall

At year’s end, job approval ratings put Saskatchewan’s Brad Wall on top, Ontario’s Kathleen Wynne sinks further

Dec. 13, 2016 

Premier Brad Wall of Saskatchewan remains the most popular in the country, largely due to his opposition to the federal government’s plans to impose a tax on carbon emissions.

Brian Pallister

Wall believes such a tax will damage the Saskatchewan economy.

Manitoba’s Brian Pallister comes in second. Wall and Pallister are the only two premiers at or above a 50-percent approval rating.

Kathleen Wynne

Kathleen Wynne of Ontario remains — for another quarter — the least popular premier in Canada.

Beleaguered by the fallout of her government’s sale of Hydro One and under pressure from the Ontario auditor general for not spending the proceeds of that sale in the most effective way possible, Wynne’s job performance approval has dropped to 16 percent.

Stephen McNeil

But it is Nova Scotia Premier Stephen McNeil who experiences the largest drop in job approval over the past three months: from 38 to 31 per cent.

Much of this is attributable to an ongoing labour dispute with teachers and a controversial decision by the government to close schools on Monday, Dec. 5, after the Nova Scotia Teachers Union directed teachers and staff to operate under a work-to-rule protocol.
