Fracking threatens water, sustainable jobs and a stable climate. In the fall of 2014, the Newfoundland and Labrador government established an independent review of hydraulic fracturing. Last year, many community members made submissions to the NL Hydraulic Fracturing Review Panel (NLHFRP) and participated in the public consultations on the West Coast.
95% of participants in the process told the NLHFRP that they don't want fracking in NL.
The panel will release their report with recommendations to government on May 31st at 9:30am NT. Now is the time to make sure panel members and the government know we want a stop to fracking and to transition away from fossil fuels in order to safeguard water, our climate and sustainable jobs for future generations.
A public meeting will also be held at the Maria Regina Parish Hall in Port au Port East on Tuesday, May 31 at 6pm.
Meetings with panel members can also be arranged on Tuesday, May 31 and Wednesday, June 1 in:
