The story notes that project critics have long cited a poll done last year, suggesting broad public opposition to the two province pipeline as a key factor in the fight to prevent its construction.

The new online poll, which surveyed one thousand B.C. residents during the three day period ending December 15th, began by describing the project to build the underground twin pipeline from Brudheim, North of Edmonton, to Kitimat.

With 42 percent of those surveyed claiming to be very or somewhat familiar with the proposed project, 52 percent then said they strongly or somewhat support it.

The Sun quotes Enbridge spokesman Paul Stanway as saying the new poll shows British Columbians are a lot more open-minded than some people would suggest and “What this says to us is that there’s an opportunity here to convince and to educate British Columbians.”
