A Petition to Ban Shale Gas Exploration and Production in New Brunswick To the Honourable Legislative Assembly of New Brunswick assembled: The Government of New Brunswick is expediting the exploration and production of shale gas on 1.5M hectares of land, private and public, throughout our province without a formal public inquiry. The history of shale gas development elsewhere has seen devastating impacts on drinking water, surface waters, air quality, landscape integrity and human health. Evidence from across North America, from jurisdictions with stronger regulatory frameworks and enforcement capacity than NB, has shown that accidents and detrimental impacts cannot be avoided. Therefore, we the undersigned, call on the Government of New Brunswick to place a ban on shale gas and focus on the creation of jobs to significantly reduce energy consumption in NB and replace our dependence on fossil fuels with renewable sources of energy.
