Almost 48 per cent of people who responded to an Advocate poll said the federal government’s decision to purchase the Trans Mountain pipeline was costly mistake.
On May 29, the liberal government announced it will buy the Trans Mountain pipeline and all of Kinder Morgan Canada’s core assets for $4.5 billion.
The poll, which ran from June 1 to 8, showed 53 out of 111 people believed it was a costly error. Another 31 per cent, or 35 people, said it had to be done.
Only 12 per cent, or 14 people, thought it was a great idea, and 4.5 per cent, or five people, said it was an environmental disaster.
