B.C. citizens reject coal-fired power

New poll shows British Columbians demand provincial law to reduce global warming.


An overwhelming majority of British Columbians are starting the new year wanting the province to enact climate change legislation with mandatory targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, according to a new province-wide survey.
The survey, carried out for Sierra Legal, found that 82 per cent of British Columbians agree (and 66 per cent strongly agree) that the B.C. government should enact such legislation. Only a small fraction (six per cent) strongly disagree that the province should do so.
Support for climate change legislation is equally strong across gender lines, all age groups and all geographic regions of the province.
