We polled and Manitobans answered. In December 2016, CUPE Local 998 and CUPE Manitoba commissioned Probe Research Inc. to conduct a poll of one thousand Manitobans to gain an understanding of public sentiment towards PowerSmart. The results are in and confirm our belief that the public thinks PowerSmart should stay with Manitoba Hydro; with 94% of survey respondents supporting PowerSmart and 78% of survey respondents believing PowerSmart should stay with Manitoba Hydro.
A Media Release is being issued today to inform the media of the Power Smart Poll Question Results in the hopes that they will carry the story to the public. Follow the above links for the news release and poll question results and keep an eye on the news for media coverage.
