Welcome to Tyee’s reader poll.

Tyee Poll: Could Canada Catch ‘Trumpism’?

There’s a bug going around.

Michael Adams, author of Could It Happen Here?: Canada in the Age of Trump and Brexit, calls it Trumpism.

In a recent Tyee piece, Adams defined Trumpism as a case of “angry, isolationist and frequently nativist populism.” It’s not just the U.S. that’s got it (despite the bug’s namesake); Brexit U.K., Germany, France, Hungary, Poland and the Netherlands have had cases too.

Are these attitudes possible in Canada? Adams argues some parts of our country have already “been there done that.”

We’re wondering what you think. After all, there are still pockets of our population that aren’t welcoming to immigrants, refugees, Muslims and members of the LGBTQ2+ community.
