Oh Canada!

Canada’s only national newspaper and bastion of small-c conservatism The Globe and Mail has just published a poll which asked ‘Is socialism still a viable political alternative for the major industrial nations?’ From the 13,459 who voted, 60% answered in the affirmative. Probably doesn’t mean an awful lot – particularly as most people’s reading of the word ‘socialism’ is probably akin to a Blairite social democratic reformism – but it does show that the word itself is still very much on the political agenda (in Canada at least) and therefore up for grabs in terms of the battle for ideas.
