Local Survey Finds High Opposition to Urban Drilling

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: There's no ambiguity in the latest survey by the College's Citizen Society Research lab when it comes to Urban Drilling.

Almost 76% of residents polled are opposed to Urban Drilling. That number goes up to 81% when just west side residents are taken into account.

Lethbridge College Political Scientist Dr. Faron Ellis says you would normally expect to see some degree of diversity on most issues but, that wasn't the case in this survey.

Ellis noted the only possible area of surprise, "Some people might be expecting that support (for urban drilling) even at a quarter of the people was very high, so if there's anything unexpected for some people, it's the activists thinking it should be unanimous opposition".

The survey of 607 randomly chosen residents was conducted on February 8th and 9th of this month.  The results were fairly consistent among all education and age groups. However, there was slightly more of a distinction along political lines. The survey document states, "Although still more opposed than supportive, federal Conservative and provincial PC and Wildrose supporters are less opposed than are their Liberal and NDP counterparts". 

Survey results fluctuated slightly depending on the area of the city.  The Link to CSLR results on Urban Drilling is below:
