Canadians less concerned with the Gomery commission

Summer tranquility seems to have given the Martin government a break. If the sponsorship scandal was almost front and centre when Parliament recessed for the spring, on the eve of parliament resuming in the fall, a third of Canadians (35%) say they are less concerned with the Gomery commission than they were last year as opposed to 21% who are even more so. The picture is slightly different in Québec where 30% of voters claim being even more concerned with Gomery, i.e., nine points above the national average.

Positive sign for the government: among Liberal voters, 52% believe it is now time to move on to other things.
