Fracking meeting in Souris

Don’t Frack PEI is presenting an information session Monday, January 19th, from 7 pm to 9 pm at Souris Ski Lodge, Route 305, Souris. The session is open to all who have an interest in learning more about, and taking action around, hydraulic fracturing (fracking) for natural gas. We will explore what has recently happened in other provinces, and the threat that fracking poses to PEI.
Souris & Area Branch of PEI Wildlife Federation is the host and chair of this event, and will be providing light refreshments. One speaker will explain how fracking differs from other forms of oil & gas extraction, and will detail the many negative impacts of fracking, and will explain how our four neighbouring provinces have come to enact fracking moratoriums. A second speaker will explore the concept of ‘social license’, and what can be done to counter the threat of fracking.  Finally, we will explore the alternatives to oil and gas – Wind, Water, Sun, and Geothermal – outlining how these are valid alternatives, and that they are, in fact, essential for the future of our planet.
