Quebec prefers pipelines and Western oil, poll shows

A new poll suggests Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre may not be representing his constituents’ views on pipelines after all.

On Jan. 21, Coderre announced that all Montreal-area municipalities were opposed to the construction of the Energy East pipeline, which would travel through Quebec. But a new poll out from Leger shows respondents prefer pipelines over all the other options, and they prefer their oil comes from Western Canada, too.

The online poll of over 1,000 respondents taken in early February and commissioned by the Montreal Economic Institute asks where Quebecers think the best place is from which to import their oil.

    Corderre is a jackass. He’s merely the mayor of a municipality, but he seems to think he’s the Sun King. He’s an obnoxious little twerp

    Back in ’06 during Operation Cast Lead, Corderre demonstrated his support for the Palestinians by standing shoulder to shoulder with reps of groups like Hezbollah.

    Perhaps Corderre could explain to the good Burghers of Lac Mégantic just how dangerous pipelines are when compared to other means of transporting oil…like using railways.

    Who cares what Canadians want, PM Shithead is out to destroy Canada that is his total policy.

    Screw pipelines in Quebec.

    I say ship all the oil through Quebec by rail. And increase the shipping volume to a level where it is guaranteed that another rail accident will happen and BBQ some more Quebecers. That is what these communist scumbags deserve.

      Ouch, that’s a bit severe. However, it would probably be very effective.

    Great, so all that needs to be done is for Albertan oil to be magically refined and teleported directly into Quebec fuel tanks. Then everyone’s happy.
