I actually say we have "arrived" because I was emailed a very recent Poll done by the Building Trades Council of Canada. This group is like a whole Convention Centre full of the most bloated business unions in our country. These are the "Fat Cats of the Fat Cats" sort of a Top-Gun meets Forbes 500 of the richest of big organized labour in Canada.
Anyway, if you are following the story at all, this is the group that hired an Ontario Conservative think tank marketing group (The story is in this thread) to turn coat and become a pro-left, union sycophantic drummer and horn blower to fight this Bill. Keep in mind that they are using member dues to fund that fight, so anyone in any of those unions who thinks Bill C-377 is good... should be pissed off.
This is what is referred to as a "push poll" which even the extreme left Wikipedia defines as:
As an example, Leger qualifies the research with this statement about the “research group”:A push poll is an interactive marketing technique, most commonly employed during political campaigning, in which an individual or organization attempts to influence or alter the view of respondents under the guise of conducting a poll. In a push poll, large numbers of respondents are contacted, and little or no effort is made to collect and analyze response data. Instead, the push poll is a form of telemarketing-based propaganda and rumor mongering, masquerading as a poll. Push polls may rely on innuendo or knowledge gleaned from opposition research on an opponent.
So folks, right outta the gates the people being “interviewed” were from a list that the union gave to Leger, this is not a random poll of Canadians. I read that quote from the report as almost a secret message from the folks at Leger.735 interviews with members of the various building trades unions across Canada using a list provided by the Building And Construction Trades Department (AFL-CIO). Based on the contact details available in the lists, Leger conducted the interviews via telephone or online as applicable.
(I added the emphasis)
Now, enough with the introducitons, here is a Poll that this group of unions commissioned about "Building Trades 2012 Member Research Study"
Sign up for an account people, I want to run a Poll and you can't vote if you're not a member.
