Hear yea! Hear yea! Take the Poll and Be Heard

The Purple Violet Press is running a poll at the right of this page, asking readers, if it can be done responsibly, do you want an oil and gas industry in New Brunswick or not? The poll is free, anonymous and simple as one click, so have your say.


  1. ".. done responsibly..." from who's point of view? Come on this is a very ambiguous question. Can't vote on this!!!

  2. The old jobs vs environment red herring.

    Look, these industries don't give a shite about our water and lands. Their families don't live here.
    So they will happily pit neighbour against neighbour, dangling the carrot of "good jobs" in front of them.

    There is nothing responsible about the Oil and Gas Industry.
    Exxon Oil Spill
    Tar Sands
    Gulf Oil Spill
    Fracking accidents everywhere
    The list goes on....

    This question is disingenuous.

  3. Would you help pull the trigger of a gun if you didn't. Know where the bullet will go.... Redfeather

  4. If you have to say "im sorry" it will already be too late

  5. That is the wrong question. The right question is "Do you want hydraulic fracturing in NB?" See how simple and straightforward that question is? Go ahead and run a poll with that.
