Handbill: 5 reasons to ban fracking

70% of Canadians support a moratorium on fracking

Communities coast to coast are raising red flags about fracking. Farmers and landowners in the Prairies who live near fracking drill sites can light their tap water on fire because it’s so contaminated with methane. Energy companies are withdrawing billions of litres of water from the Fort Nelson River in northeastern B.C., the lifeline of the Fort Nelson First Nation and other communities downstream. Any fracking in southern Ontario will pose serious risks to the Great Lakes, the drinking water source to more than 40 million people. Communities across Atlantic Canada are demanding – and getting – fracking bans to protect their drinking water and livelihoods.
