The latest poll out of B.C.:
In the survey, respondents were shown a map with the proposed location of the Enbridge Northern Gateway, a new pipeline from Alberta to British Columbia’s north coast that would export oil on tankers to China. Only nine per cent of British Columbians completely support the proposal (+2 since August), while 27 per cent support it (=), but could change their minds based on economic or environmental considerations.
Across the province, one third of respondents (34%, -1) say they completely oppose the Enbridge Northern Gateway, while one-in-four (23%, -1) oppose the proposal, but could change their minds based on economic or environmental considerations.
Worth noting that this this is after Harper's government's attempt over the last month or two to cool down the rhetoric re the pipe-line. Also worth noting: the people behind Ethical Oil.org, the government created pro-tarsand's astroturf group, haven't published anything in over a month. Previously, they were spewing propaganda at the rate of a couple pieces a week. I suspect that Harper and co. have realized that yelling at people isn't a very good PR strategy.
PS. Betcha Line 9 ain't going anywhere either.
