The survey showed 46% ranked environmental concerns as the most important while 43% ranked secure supply as most important. Of American respondents, 55% listed a secure supply as being their most important concern while 33% listed environmental concerns. For both countries, the remaining respondents said neither was the most important or that they didn't know. Survey findings Fleishman-Hillard Canada Research surveyed 500 Canadians and 500 Americans in an online poll during May and June. The margin of error was 3.1%. Survey respondents were representative of the US and Canadian populations in terms of region, age, language, and gender. The survey showed 67% of Canadians and 47% of Americans were somewhat to very aware of oil sands in Alberta. Other findings were: -- When asked if future oil sands development was a "good or bad thing," 75% of Canadians and 68% of Americans said "a good thing." -- When asked how important the Alberta oil sands are to the overall security of the North American energy supply, 83% of Americans vs 73% of Canadians said it was important. -- When asked if Alberta oil sands are critical for dealing with North American dependence on foreign oil, 40% of Americans agreed compared with 26% of Canadians.
