Justin Trudeau's flagship Oceans Protection Plan policy is unknown to most Canadians, despite the project costing $1.5 billion and a key election pledge.

More worrying, however, was that the Trudeau government splashed out $150,820 for the survey, which interviewed 2,702 people across the country.

This program was launched some four years ago, yet government researchers concluded that "Relatively few Canadians have heard of the Oceans Protection Plan," according to Blacklock's Reporter.

"One in five, 21 percent, have heard of the plan and another thirteen percent are unsure, although 66 percent said they have not heard of the plan," the underwhelmed government researchers continued.

This project was announced by Justin Trudeau in 2016, and yet when pollsters describe the program in detail, only 33 percent of Canadians said that they "vaguely recall the initiative."

In 2016, when Trudeau was explaining this policy to reporters, the prime minister declared that it would make Canada "a world leader in marine safety."

Not to be outdone, Transport Canada repeatedly called the program "the largest investment ever made to protect Canada’s coasts and waterways."
