It depends. I think Canadian women tend to revere Thatcher. Which I suppose makes sense - tough, female politicians who stand their ground don't come around very often. But there are also vast circles who acknowledge that she had a self serving political agenda and ruined hundreds of thousands of lives. I can only speak for a few provinces, but I've found talk of Thatcher to be very mixed.
That said, you'll find few people here who will celebrate her death. But then the British are in the best position to appreciate the depth of her wrongdoings. I rarely dance on graves, but I won't blame them for doing so.
