    Red face Worldwide image: Canada, Japan best, US, Israel, Iran worst

    LONDON (AP) - Israel, Iran and the United States are the countries with the most negative image in a globe-spanning survey of attitudes toward 12 major countries. Canada and Japan came out best in the poll, released Tuesday.
    The survey for the British Broadcasting Corp.'s World Service asked more than 28,000 people to rate 12 countries - Britain, Canada, China, France, India, Iran, Israel, Japan, North Korea, Russia, the United States and Venezuela - as having a positive or negative influence on the world.

    Israel was viewed negatively by 56 per cent of respondents and positively by 17 per cent; for Iran, the figures were 54 per cent and 18 per cent. The United States had the third-highest negative ranking, with 51 per cent citing it as a bad influence and 30 per cent as a good one. Next was North Korea, which was viewed negatively by 48 per cent and positively by 19 per cent.

    Canada had the most positive rating in the survey of 28,389 people in 27 countries, with 54 per cent viewing it positively and 14 per cent negatively. It was followed by Japan and France.

    Respondents were also asked their views of the 25-member European Union; 53 per cent saw it as positive and 19 per cent as negative.

    Britain, China and India were viewed more positively than negatively, while Russia had more negative than positive responses. Opinion on Venezuela was evenly split.

    "It appears that people around the world tend to look negatively on countries whose profile is marked by the pursuit of military power," said Steven Kull, director of the University of Maryland's Program on International Policy Attitudes, which conducted the research along with pollster GlobeScan.

    "Countries that relate to the world primarily through soft power, like France and Japan and the EU in general, tend to be viewed positively," he added.

    Pollsters questioned about 1,000 people each in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Britain, Canada, Chile, China, Egypt, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Italy, Kenya, Lebanon, Mexico, Nigeria, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Russia, South Korea, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates and the United States between Nov. 3 and Jan. 16. The margin of error in each country ranged between plus or minus 3.1 percentage points and plus or minus 4.9 percentage points.

    Interesting survey. I've never seen anything like this before.

    Anyhow, I wonder where Austrailia has scored?

    Everyone loves Canada. I have a friend who travels the world and when she goes to places unfriendly to the US, she tells the locals she's from Canada and they instantly brighten up. When they think she's American they treat her with utter hostility and when they think she's Canadian, they love her to bits.

    Apparently, although people liked Canada, almost no one surveyed knew anything about it.

    I know that Vancouver does not have enough people or interest to sustain a baseball team, hence the Expos couldn't move from Montreal to Vancouver as many Vancouver baseball fans are already Seattle Mariners fans and didn't want to build a stadium.

    Well if you are talking about the weather phenomenon it is called the "Alberta clipper' and they are conservative there and all the other Canadians hate them so I think Grimm and the other canucks on here would agree.
    Don't slap me, cause I'm not in the mood!

    My husband's job takes him to different countries around the world and he has reported the same thing. As soon as people find out that he and his crew are Canadian their attitudes completely change and they start chatting them up and being all friendly toward them. Sometimes it seems like everyone loves Canadians except for Americans.

    Can't we all just get along?
