Trans Mountain supported by growing majority of Canadians: poll

Angus Reid poll finds that Canadian support for the Trans Mountain Expansion Project is growing and includes a majority of British Columbians.

An Angus Reid poll conducted in April finds that support for the Trans Mountain Expansion Project among Canadians has grown—from 49 per cent in February to 55 per cent in April. Only 26 per cent of Canadians say they are opposed to the project. As well, an increasing number of Canadians (64 per cent) agree that the B.C. government is wrong to oppose the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.

Meanwhile, the percentage of Canadians who disagree with B.C. Premier John Horgan’s opposition to the pipeline increased from 55 per cent to 65 per cent. More than half (54 per cent) of B.C. respondents say they support the pipeline project, while 38 per cent say they are opposed.
