A new international survey shows Canadians are in a very positive mood about the state of the economy, suggesting the opposition parties face an uphill battle pushing for change on the eve of a possible federal election.

Describing Canada as a “superstar,” an Ipsos online survey of citizens in 24 countries finds 68 per cent of Canadians are feeling good about the economy. Those January numbers are up six points from a month earlier.

And our superstar Prime Minister is very well thought of by the Obama administration too:

Macleans interview with Gary Doer,
Canada’s ambassador to the U.S

Q: What does President Obama think of Canada?

A: The bottom line is that the President and his people trust the Prime Minister.
He’s a straight shooter, he tells it like it is.
I know from people in the White House—and I’ve heard from very senior people I know personally in the White House—that [before meetings with other foreign leaders] they get a read from the Prime Minister about how the meeting is going to shake down and how each participant is going to deal with an issue.
When you are a new President you don’t know how a meeting is going to develop and how different people are going to participate on an issue of interest to the U.S.
That has been something that has been valued in the U.S. When you have a powerful person going into their first meeting it’s useful to have someone you trust going into those meetings.
They trust his nose on how issues will develop at the meetings.

So will Soloman do a segment on Canada being an economic superstar? If so, expect Scott Brison.
