Poll Shows BC Opposition to Northern Gateway Growing -- But Open to Change
Both sides of argument find positive news in numbers
Both supporters and opponents of the Enbridge Northern Gateway proposal say they find something positive in the latest opinion poll numbers on the controversial project.
Angus Reid reports 59 per cent of British Columbians who responded oppose the pipeline -- but of those, 24 per cent say they could change their minds based on economic or environmental concerns.
Of the 34 per cent who say they support the Enbridge project, 27 per cent have reservations, and say they could change THEIR minds too.
Opponents say this shows the tide of public opinion is turning against Northern Gateway -- but Enbridge says it means the company needs to work harder to address concerns of British Columbians.
