ConocoPhillips fracking in the Northwest Territories last winter.
CBC reports, "An N.W.T. group opposed to hydraulic fracturing is rallying support for a moratorium in the territory until all of the controversial practice's potential impacts are reviewed. Fracking Action North, a coalition of residents affiliated with the N.W.T. Chapter of the Council of Canadians, Ecology North, and Alternatives North, is asking for people to sign a petition supporting a moratorium and comprehensive review under the territory's Mackenzie Valley Resource Management Act."
The Council of Canadians Campbell River chapter and Timberline Earth Club will be hosting a public forum on LNG development and fracking on February 11. The speakers at the forum will be Vancouver-based Council of Canadians organizer Leila Darwish and Dr. Eoin Finn.
