Poll shows broad national support for energy sector during COVID recovery

A new national poll commissioned by the Business Council of Alberta shows encouraging cross-Canada support for the province’s energy sector, the organization said Friday.

The non-profit Business Council commissioned the Ipsos poll, which surveyed 1,003 Canadians from across the country, to gain understanding of Canadians’ priorities as the country begins the challenging work of recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the results, 71 per cent of respondents agreed that Canada’s natural resource industry should be part of the country’s economic recovery strategy while 75 per cent of respondents said it is possible to support the natural resource industry during recovery while at the same time protecting the environment.
