Dear Members of Parliament,
In order to uphold Canada’s international obligation to protect the human right to water and sanitation, I urge you to place a ban on future fracking.
Fracking uses millions of litres of water and has the potential to contaminate drinking water with methane and toxic chemicals. Safely disposing of fracking wastewater is incredibly difficult and the injection of fracking wastewater into the ground has been linked to earthquakes.
Fracking is one of the biggest threats to water of our time. I urge you to ban future fracking to protect communities’ drinking water.
