A new poll conducted by, and paid for by Angus Reid Global shows Canadians are split on whether yesterday’s decision by the Harper Government to conditionally approve the Northern Gateway Pipeline proposal was the right one.
- 37% said yes.
- 34% said no.
- 29% weren’t sure.
Angus Reid VP Shachi Kurl says the BC results were similar.
“So in British Columbia, 38% say it was the right decision, 40% say it was the wrong decision, again a very close split there, and then the remainder saying they’re not sure.”
And she says on the question of whether British Columbians think the pipeline will eventually be built, regardless of their views, 68% said yes.
