On November 29th, the Justin Trudeau Liberal government approved the Kinder Morgan and Line 3 pipelines and did not approve of the Northern Gateway pipeline, effectively cancelling that pipeline. Pipelines have been high on the political agenda in Canada and as a centrist party the Liberals have supporters who both favour and oppose pipelines. What impact has taking a firm stand on three pipelines had on their support?
Most Canadians are following this story at least somewhat closely (56%) with British Columbians (68%) and Albertans (69%) following it the most closely.
So far, Canadians are supporting the government’s decisions. More Canadians support than oppose both the two pipeline approvals and the one disapproval.
