Bad news for Justin. Bad news for Andy.
A new survey shows the environment is the most important issue for Vancouver voters. It's also a close second concern for Vancouver businesses.
BTW, Libs who dismissively wrote off Jody Wilson-Raybould's prospects in Vancouver-Granville may be soiling their dainties at polls showing she has a narrow lead in the riding over the Liberal challenger. It seems she's drawn off a good segment of the Liberal party faithful who are no longer particularly fond of the Dauphin. Quelle surprise!
The report, compiled by the Mustel Group, FleishmanHillard HighRoad and the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade, surveyed voters and businesses in Metro Vancouver. It found that nearly half of local residents polled cited the environment as a top election issue, followed by the economy and jobs (27 per cent), affordability (21 per cent) and various social issues (21 per cent).
The economy was the top issue among members of the business community, 45 per cent of whom listed it as the most important topic ahead of the environment (37 per cent), taxes (28 per cent) and affordability (21 per cent).
