A new Ipsos-Reid poll says half of Canadians do not want to follow the United States on extending daylight saving time.
If Canada does not make the time change, it may complicate things for business but John Wright, senior vice-president at Ipsos-Reid says:
"We may have a bit of pro-Canadianism here," he said, adding Canadians may see the decision less as a North American move to save energy and more as a unilateral one bearing the fingerprints of the Bush administration. "It's again seen as something that, unilaterally, is undertaken with no consideration given to other countries which may be affected by it," Mr. Wright said.
The headline is pretty loaded considering the content of the article.
This same story was translated into this headline on NealeNews:

Did you spot the spin?
Apparently the Canadian desire not to tinker with the clocks translates directly into "Anti-Bushism".
And here I was thinking that the original headline was loaded! :p
