TORONTO, ON, Canada (UPI) -- A new poll finds the images of Hurricane Katrina`s aftermath have harmed Canadians` image of the United States.

One-third of those surveyed for a poll done for the Toronto Globe and Mail said their impressions of U.S. society had changed and 85 percent of that group said the change was for the worse.

'They saw the underbelly of America that is traditionally hidden, an underbelly that is not only rife with poverty, that is so very much along race lines,' said Alan Gregg of The Strategic Counsel, which conducted the poll.

More than half of those polled, 54 percent, believe the government of Prime Minister Paul Martin would have been more effective than the Bush administration if faced with a similar disaster.

Gregg said since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, Canadians have come to feel more different from U.S. citizens than they did before.
