Barely a third of Quebecers are in favour of the GNL Québec/Gazoduq project, nearly a half are opposed to it, and Quebecers are strongly opposed to any government financial support for the gas export project. These are among the results of a province-wide Léger poll conducted from November 20 to 22, 2020, which were released this week.
To the question: "The GNL Québec/Gazoduq project is a project to export gas from Western Canada that would be transported by pipeline across Québec from the Abitibi region to Saguenay, then sent overseas using ships, which would pass through the Saguenay Fjord and the St. Lawrence River. Do you have a favourable or unfavourable view of this project?”, only a third (34%) of respondents said they have a "favourable" view and among this number, only 11% had a "very favourable" view. In comparison, twice as many Quebecers (21%) have a "very unfavourable" view of the GNL Québec project.
