According to a new Angus Reid Poll 54 per cent of those asked in B.C. are in favour of Trans Mountain Pipeline, while 38 per cent are opposed to it.

On the national level, support for the pipeline is also growing. Almost two-thirds of those polls say the B.C. government is wrong to try and block the pipeline.

Why does this matter?

The level of support for the pipeline has continued to increase over the last two months. This could mean that the loss of the Trans Mountain pipeline or a further dragged out battle could be costly for both the Prime Minister and the governing coalition in British Columbia.

  1. If all of The First Nations in Canada and if all the polls showed 100 percent of the people were in favour of the pipeline, that would not indicate that building it would be a good idea. The science underpinning Climate Change, Global Warming, and spills does not depend on peoples opinions or agreement. Polls only show the level of understanding of an issue in the populace. The very serious scientific fact of the matter is that we humans are now living in The Anthropocene Era, brought on entirely by our own doing. Building the pipeline will only exacerbate our human condition. Canada with the 2nd largest land mass of all countries on the Planet has a moral and ethical responsibility to be a climate leader. Building The Trans Mountain pipeline is not being a climate leader.
