On September 22 the people of New Brunswick voted clearly and decisively against fracking. They defeated the incumbent government that was backing (and was backed by) the fracking industry and elected a government that promises to implement a moratorium against fracking.
And so far the premier-designate is holding firm to his promise. The Canadian Press has reported, "Brian Gallant is promising to make a moratorium on hydraulic fracturing for shale gas one of his first priorities when he becomes premier of New Brunswick in the next couple of weeks."
But the fracking industry isn't likely to give up easily.
