The B.C. Conservatives have seen a boost in their support that may be linked to the popularity of the federal Tories led by Pierre Poilievre, according to a new poll.

Polling firm Angus Reid released a report on April 1 stating that those who support the federal Conservative party are nearly twice as likely to support the provincial Conservatives over the centre-right BC United, formerly the BC Liberals.

The poll found that 56 percent of federal Tory voters supported the B.C. Conservatives, while just 29 percent supported BC United.

B.C. Conservative Leader John Rustad has echoed the slogans of federal Tory Leader Pierre Poilievre, including a similar promise to “axe the tax” regarding his province’s own carbon tax.
