The authors make attempt to identify the characteristics of political and economic image of the USSR, as well as the image of Soviet culture and sport that existed in Canadian public opinion. The primary sources used for the research include the whole range of the following materials: the results of opinion polls conducted by Gallup Inc. in Canada that were never brought to scientific research before, lots of text and graphic data from libraries and archives of Canada — original pages of federal and regional press, photos, newspaper caricatures.
