Posthaste: What Quebecers really think about Alberta's oil pipelines

  • A vast majority of Quebecers (65 per cent) prefer their oil was sourced from Western Canada, compared to just 13 per cent who picked American oil and 5 per cent who preferred to get their fossil-fuel fix from another country, according to a new survey.
  • As many as 45 per cent of Quebecers polled by Ipsos on behalf of the Montreal Economic Institute, also want their province to develop its own oil resources rather than source imported oil.
  • Quebecers also remain conscious of the economic costs of climate change and said they were willing to pay more in taxes — as much as $207 per year to fight climate change.
  • That’s generous, but not as high as respondents in Saskatchewan/Manitoba who were willing to pay even more, at $287, according to the survey.
