   A majority of Canadians back the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion that has sparked a fight between British Columbia and Alberta but few want to see the government devote public money to backstopping the project, a new poll indicates.
    More than two-thirds of Canadians support, or somewhat support, enlarging the capacity of the Trans Mountain pipeline that runs between Alberta’s oil sands and ports in British Columbia, a Globe and Mail poll conducted by Nanos Research says. Forty-seven per cent of respondents said they support it and another 20 per cent said they somewhat support it.
   The poll, conducted April 28 to May 4, found 16 per cent oppose the expansion and 11 per cent somewhat oppose it. Six per cent were unsure.
