The Mustel Group has replied to an inquiry about a recent poll regarding the Kitimat Clean oil refinery proposal.

The Sentinel had asked where poll participants had come from in the province.

Matt Shepherd with the Mustel Group said the poll of 800 people — conducted online with people over the age of 18 — included seven per cent of people in the Northern interior, defined as north of Kamloops.

That would represent 56 people in a sample of 800.

The rest of the breakdown is as follows:

8 per cent — Greater Victoria

10 per cent — Other Vancouver Island/South Coast

22 per cent — South Interior (Kamloops and South)

15 per cent — City of Vancouver

38 per cent — Other Metro Vancouver
