If you’ve been paying attention to the recent political climate, you’ve probably heard Conservative Party Leader Pierre Poilievre say Canada is a “broken” country on numerous occasions. 

“After 8 years of Trudeau, everything feels broken,” Poilievre tweeted on Sunday.

His sentiments have since sparked a national debate on whether Canada is truly in trouble or not.

Whether it’s waves of social media reactions, Justin Trudeau clapping back, or a national survey confirming the worst, many can agree it’s a conversation worth having. 

So, here’s what Canadians think about the state of our country:

Additionally, a recent survey by Leger revealed just how unimpressed Canadians are.

The poll says nearly 70 per cent of Canadians believe the country is broken. 

Meanwhile, 50 per cent  of respondents said they are not happy with the way the country is being managed today. 

However, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau does not agree with Poilievre and rejects the idea that Canada is breaking under the pressure. 

“Canada is not broken,” Trudeau said to thousands of Liberal Party members during a Christmas party back in December.   

“Mr. Poilievre might choose to undermine our democracy by amplifying conspiracy theories. He might decide to run away from journalists when they ask him tough questions. That’s how he brands himself. That’s his choice. But, when he says that Canada is broken, that’s where we draw the line.”
