Oil in Quebec

Quebecers’ opinions about the development of oil, its provenance, and its transport diverge markedly from what is often heard from certain interest groups, and from certain members of the political elite, according to the results of a Léger poll commissioned by the MEI. Generally speaking, Quebecers are open to oil development and are pragmatic when it comes to its provenance and transport.

Media release: Quebecers would rather develop the province’s own oil, as well as import it from Western Canada, and transport it with pipelines
