Why take the risk ! There is a lot of hype these days about the dangers of shale gas exploration in New Brunswick , but also from around the globe . Check out this web site for more information on the subject …http://noshalegas.wordpress.com/. I find it very disturbing that big business appears to hold the trump card over the environment here in New Brunswick . You already know how I feel about the exploitation of the forest resource at the expense of the watershed and fish & wildlife , now we have the shale gas boys in town . It amazes me to think that we have strict laws in place for dealing with a single liter of oil that might drip from a farmers tractor into the soil but a shale gas company can pump hundreds of thousands of liters of toxic chemicals into the ground during routine exploration , not to mention the millions of liters of fresh water that will be pumped from our brooks , lakes and rivers . Corporate greed in the name of reducing the government deficit has to take a back seat to the environment . Don’t be surprised when you begin to see the shale gas companies sponsoring your kids hockey teams, buying items for the local church’s , museums etc. and putting on nice family type bar-b-ques to try and suck you in . SAY NO TO SHALE GAS !!!!!!!
