Commentary
“Mostly Positive” - on “City of Port Coquitlam political leadership” (“Decided”) (85.37%).
“Support federal legalization of marijuana”, “Yes”, (“Decided”) (77.73%).
Taxes from marijuana sales stay local (“Decided”) (70.06%).
Moving City of Port Coquitlam Police from federal RCMP police force to Local Police Force (“Decided”) (68.54%) “Support”.
“New hotel and ‘Glen P. Robbins Designed Micro Casino’” (“DMC”) (less than 100 seats), ‘to be built in Port Coquitlam at or near to the new Fremont city centre and massive business development…taxes to Port Coquitlam City Hall and not to Province of BC’ (unable to manage crime being the indirect ‘inferred predicate’)” (“Decided”) (70.44%).
Trans Mountain pipeline expansion settlement between Province of Alberta, Government of Canada, stakeholders et al $5.6 Billion to British Columbia upon signing (B.C. to make its own arrangements from proceeds with respect to environmental Watch) (“Decided”) (60%) “to the deal”.
Support for Provincial Tax Credit (any tax credit) for 50 new high paying jobs (NB oddly few asking what “high paying” means- my idea was that higher paying would attract inquiry) –(It starts around $25.00 per hour I would suggest) *about the Cost of paying employees for one year – against conventional lease agreements for term”). (“Decided”) (74.48%).
(“Decided” “Good v Poor”) (38.69%).
Canada and BC fund Skytrain expansion from Coquitlam to Port Coquitlam “Yes” (“Decided”) “Yes” (78.92%). (Part of proceeds from deal ($5.6 Billion) with Alberta and Trans Mountain to Port Coquitlam ((with top up to Surrey)).
“Port Coquitlam is a city in British Columbia, Canada”. “Located (17 mi.) east of Vancouver” with 20 minutes to “World Class” Kitsilano Beach (“Kits Beach”).
“PoCo” as it is called…. “Is Canada’s 88th largest city by population” @ just less than ‘60,000 persons’.
Just less than [2/3] of population is Caucasian, the balance being Visible Minority [1/3] or Aboriginal [<5%].
“Port Coquitlam political leadership” ties for 1st place with “Tax Credit for RSR ROBBINS polling head office and high paying jobs” at (net) (71.90%) (ED: only the 3rd time an exact net score to two basis point has occurred since ROBBINS 1st published poll 1998).
Q1-“Mostly Positive” (“Decided”) (85.37%). Q#7- Support for Provincial Tax Credit (any tax credit) for 50 new high paying jobs (NB oddly few asking what “high paying” means- my idea was that higher paying would attract inquiry) –(It starts around $25.00 per hour I would suggest) *about the Cost of paying employees for one year – against conventional lease agreements for term”). (“Decided”) (74.48%).
Because “Tax Credit for RSR ROBBINS polling head office and high paying jobs” contains element of “push” (ED: pushes don’t always push to the ‘positive’) so it is 2nd to “Port Coquitlam political leadership” (ED: although be asked 1st and being “Mostly Positive” or “Mostly Negative” attracts respondents who agree at their most energetic – this fades with each subsequent question be degree and depending on the question.).
3rd place goes to “Skytrain to Port Coquitlam” (net) (71.13%), 4th to New Hotel and Glen P. Robbins Micro Casino, 5th moves RCMP on out of Port Coquitlam and a new local police force in. Sixth place takes taxes from Marihuana sales and directs them to Port Coquitlam City Hall for use in community services like police, fire etc., and out of the Provincial government hands in Victoria, B.C., who is perceived generally as failing to regulate to Casino (Gaming) oversight in the Province of B.C.
Seventh place goes to Trans Mountain with $5.6 Billion ‘consideration’ to British Columbia upon closing of current settlement negotiations. (ED: From lower mainland “Poco” is originally working persons place that is being buffed up nicely – to wit – you can’t get your pipeline here – good luck making British Columbians generally happy).
Eighth place on (net) score ‘affirmative to subject matter’ goes to “Legalization of Marijuana”.
No (net) Score is attached to “Roll out of Marijuana Sales” in City of Port Coquitlam (3 response choices including one “Fair” -).
Combination of Methodology: Random - Survey & Other. Margin of Error/Estimate: 4.5% plus or minus.
