Poll results: Strong support to have no exclusion zones for CFOs

Ponoka News’ most recent web poll show readers do not want to see CFO exclusion zones

Ponoka News readers do not think Ponoka County should be involved in the legislation of confined feeding operations.

Our most recent question: Do you think Ponoka County should have exclusion zones in its plans? showed strong interest online from readers.

Of the 553 total votes, the vast majority, 470 (85 per cent) stated ‘no’ in their answers. There were 74 (13.5 per cent) votes in favour of the question with six (about one per cent) who were unsure and three (0.5 per cent) who provided their own suggestions, which amounted to protecting farmland.

Ponoka News’ web polls are a way to engage with readers and get a feel for what residents want. They do not represent an official petition or plebiscite and do not represent Ponoka County. Check at www.ponokanews.com/web-poll for more polls.
