Council of Canadians available for comment on New Brunswick fracking review

The Council of Canadians is available to comment on the release of the report from the New Brunswick Commission on Hydraulic Fracturing, scheduled to be released today at 11:00am (AST). There will be Council chapter members present at the Crowne Plaza in Fredericton for the release.

“We must ask ourselves why this Commission was struck in the first place. What was its genesis? Could this Commission possibly have access to better research than Dr. Cleary and others like her have produced?” asks Maggie Connell, co-chair of the Council of Canadians’ Fredericton chapter.

“Based on the submissions posted on the Commission’s website, it is clear that social licence in New Brunswick does not exist. How many reports and panels and commissions will be needed for government to legislate this moratorium on hydraulic fracturing in the province?” asks Angela Giles, the Council of Canadians’ Atlantic Regional Organizer.
