Only 28% of British Columbians trust the provincial government when it comes to properly handling decisions about the fledgling liquefied natural gas sector, according to an Insights West poll released Thursday.

From Oct. 3 to 8, 802 B.C. residents were polled regarding matters related to LNG, and 60% said it was the most important priority when it comes to energy policy and that Canada’s energy needs should be met before exporting to other markets, according to Mario Canseco, Insights West spokesman.

“What’s interesting to us is looking at the LNG is that there seems to be a lot of confusion out there, almost 80% want to know more about how LNG is extracted,” he said.
