Diane Horseman None of us were asked ...WHICH BRITISH COLUMBIANS WERE ASKED.. BECAUSE EVERYONE I KNOW SAYS "SCREW OFF ENBRIDGE"!
- Sierra Shelby show us where that poll came from and who they contacted lol what a bunch of BS .. stop trying to convince people that we will allow Enbridge here it aint happening or did you all miss the rallies on Saturday. its still NO. no poll was conducted in prince Rupert
- Ronnette NoEnbridge Musterer NO PIPE LINES NO OIL IN BRITISH COLUMBIA! Oh my god when will you greedy people get it through your head that the First Nations do not approve?! There's no treaty saying that we have say over one piece of land for now we have say over all of the land. NO NO NO!
- Michael Washington Wow Global BC how much did Christie Clarke pay you to run this propaganda piece? Insight West ( http://www.insightwest.ca/ ) a company that is pro Energy/Oil all of a sudden interviews people that are now pro oil, and you run the story saying that people are warming to the idea?

- Matt Tingey Look out into the ocean from the West End or Kits. See those tanks there are now? Well imagine them 3x the size. Those will be the ones going to the pipeline. BRITISH COLUMBIANS DO NOT WANT THAT.
Geraldine M Bligh twice or three times as many oil tankers on our coast and in the port of vancouver, just that many more chances to kill off our salmon and all the environm
Marcie Callewaert We live in a society where alternative forms of technology are being bought up and squashed by the oil companies. Until we make a global decision to move away from oil and into new fields of tech, there is little we can do to escape oil, even if we try. When the government starts subsidizing alternative energy etc, then we can move forward. To all those who want to stay with oil I ask, what the heck do we do the day the oil runs out?
- Jackie Small Warming up to it? Yeah right! Tell the truth, Shame the devil.
- Lise Gauthier Madsen Which people in BC were asked about this?? Shareholders, employees, executives of this company?? Nobody I know wants these things in their backyard, given the safety records of such. which have to be 'leaked' (lacking a better word) to the public while they try to cover up all their environmental damage.
- Geraldine M Bligh OH!! Since when..Global? Were you paid to pass this information on..to us? I think it's patently untrue. How about doing some truth reporting. Shameful.
- Marcie Callewaert No, we want alternatives to the oil that causes a need for trains and trucks. Brett, you are obviously missing the entire point of why people are protesting these pipelines. We don't want them moved, we want an alternative source of energy. Believe it or not, they do exis
Marcie Callewaert We don't want the pipeline moved, or trucks and trains to carry it instead - We want alternative energy sources, which are currently being bought and squashed by the oil companies. The government subsidizes them for this so they can make more cash of our country's oil. We live in an oil dependent society - but we want alternatives and THAT is what this fight is about!
- Jesse Michek No one asked me to take this pole. And if it's true and the ratings are going up, then maybe those people who favoured it should watch this video.
- Carl Mann (30 second google search)since last January Stephen Harper spent $60 million federal tax dollars advertising the benefits of pipelines,and enbridge spent 10 million of their own on commercials. http://powellriverpersuader.blogspot.ca/.../enbridge...
- Michael McGlone Thats false advertising ? Why do you resort to this ?- instead of talking to the people of B.C. explaining your position on the safety of pipelines & it's benifits for the province ? This only dis-credits & worsten your chances of implementing this project ?
- Juan Morphish BS, classic way of trying to get people to change their minds, by telling them people are changing their minds. Reality, no they aren't. Gateway is a bad deal for BC. We take all the risk so we can host some foreign temporary pipeline workers. We get zero royalties, and sweet FA from Alberta. Maybe a handful of full time jobs at the terminal. Not worth the $100 million dollar a year sport fishing industry it risks on the Skeena, and not risking the coastline for not risking the skeena commercial fishery for etc etc. Go away with this BS
- Gillian Hannah they probably surveyed people that are involved with making money on it. Similar to the BC Ferries. The surveyed 500 people. They probably asked people that don't depend on it but have no choice. I always hear "if you don't like it, move". Guess that could apply to Enbridge too!!!
- Marcie Callewaert We don't want the pipelines moved, or an alternative source of transport, we want an alternative energy source. The oil companies routinely buy and squash these technologies, which the government subsidizes them to do. We live in a society dependent on oil, and yes, we know how many things are made with oil. What happens the day the oil runs out? We want these alternative technologies developed now, so we have a choice to use them, instead of oil
- Don Todd People, people, people all this is unsustainable no matter how much money the Dark Politic of the money makers tell you. 135 years LNG supply that's two generation down the line and what will the crunch be??
- Julie Anne Bereczki Worst journalism ever. How about the 140 city's and towns across the country last Sunday protesting the absurdity of the pipeline. The only people not opposed are the people who have something to gain. Who paid you off global? Garbage
- Kami Swanson Neeme I'm sure who ever did this alleged survey was paid by the oil industry! If people actually think they will get jobs out of this they have their heads up their behinds! Companies like these hire cheep labour from other countries but I'm sure you will all get minimum wage jobs when it comes time for an oil spill clean up! So I guess there might be jobs involved!
- Catherine Reardon The pollsters must have been asking a lot of men under the age of 25 - I know I'm generalizing, but men under 25 are looking at the money to be made by the work provided and they don't think about the effect of the pipeline on their future children. Building the pipeline is so shortsighted - anyone thinking about the future is against it and that includes all of my friends!
- Chris Säville funny I just attended a "defend our climate" protest last Saturday in my tiny little town there were HUNDREDS there not too warm to the idea, there is a big difference between "warming up" and "being force f
- Zach Cripps Where are the facts to support this. I do also agree that Global is becoming a partisan to the Liberals and the Northern Gateway. Pipeline. What happened to the report before the election that showed 80% of the province doesn't want the pipeline? It too was reported on Global.
- Marcie Callewaert No - We are in a society where the governments have dictated we need oil and gas, and squashed alternative energy sources. Until the government stops subsidizing oil to squash these alternatives, we will be dependent on oil - The whole point of this is that we want those alternatives to become available!
