Canadian evenly split on Mulcair’s view of Oilsands’ Impact on the Economy


The latest Canadian Press/Harris Decima survey measured reactions to Opposition leader Thomas Mulcair’s remarks regarding the effect that the oilsands have on Canada’s economic development

According to Senior Vice-President Doug Anderson, “Our survey suggests that those who have the most to lose if oilsands development were to be slowed as a means to assist other economic sectors are the ones paying the most attention to the ‘Dutch Disease’ debate. On top of that, no region seems particularly convinced that oilsands development has been hurting exports of other sectors of Canada’s economy.”
