Help, please, sister and fellow bloggers and loyal readers. How can we find out what the most unpopular move by a Canadian government is?
I want to compare to the census senselessness. Now at Census Watch, the count is 265 civil society institutions versus 7, only 3 of which are actual organizations, the other 4 being columnists and an MP. (The list has been updated from 209 to 6.)
Of course, nowadays, dissent is much more easily registered and compiled. But there certainly have been highly unpopular moves before.
I thought of the National Energy Program and the use of the War Measures Act during the October Crisis.
Any other contenders? How might I/we go about trying to measure previous dissent against the current one?
