McLeod releases resource development results

Cathy McLeod, MP for Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo released the results to her responsible resource development survey

OTTAWA –  Cathy McLeod, Member of Parliament for Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo released the results to her responsible resource development survey.

“I was very pleased with the volume of feedback I received. Although surveys like this one are not carried out with the same rigorous standard of data collection that a professional polling agency would employ, it nevertheless provides an informative snapshot of how some of my constituents stand on this issue,” said McLeod.

The responses are categorized into four areas: support for the government’s strategy, support with questions or concerns, those opposed to the strategy, and unsure.

As of Dec. 7, 2012, my office has received 974 responses from across the riding. These included 606 communications in support (62 per cent), 48 in support with questions or concerns (five per cent), 260 opposed (27 per cent), and 60 (six per cent) unsure.

“I find these numbers encouraging, as it suggests many of my constituents support the government’s action to balance the need for economic development with environmental, health and safety concerns,” stated McLeod.


“It was a pleasure reading and considering each and every communication I received on this issue regardless of perspective,” concluded McLeod.
