CCPA-BC joins community, First Nation, environmental groups in call for public inquiry into fracking

Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives - Mon, 2017-11-06 02:14

Today the CCPA's BC Office joined with 16 other community, First Nation and environmental organizations to call for a full public inquiry into fracking in Britsh Columbia.

The call on the new BC government is to broaden a promise first made by the NDP during the lead-up to the spring provincial election, and comes on the heels of new revelations about the fracking process, including:

  • Escalating water usage by fracking companies.
  • Poor or misleading consultations with First Nations.
  • Widespread industry non-compliance with relevant provincial water laws through the construction of dozens of unlicensed dams.
  • Record-setting induced earthquakes at BC fracking operations.

Check out the full details and list of organizations calling for a public inquiry, read an oped by the CCPA-BC's Ben Parfitt, or add your voice to the call.
