Canadians expect a better 2004 Only two weeks into 2004 and 60 per cent of Canadians already predict this year will be better than last. But what they need to realize is it's not going to happen on its own. Of the 1,504 Canadians surveyed in a Leger Marketing poll, 61 per cent of Ontarians were optimistic about the new year according to the release in the Toronto Star Jan. 4.
Worldwide, Hong Kong and Kosovo led the way with 76 per cent of those polled in each country saying they believed things would improve. It’s easy to see why people would assume 2004 would outshine 2003. The December capture of Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, which ended an intense search in the Middle East, was a relief to many citizens. But we can’t run around with the innocence of a child thinking the world is at ease now with Hussein in chains. Just minutes after crowds of happy-go-lucky people shouted happy new year, the first shooting of 2004 in Toronto sounded volumes over the noisemakers and
