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.
