Community Groups Hold Day of FRACtion

It may be the long weekend, but organizations fighting against shale gas exploration in the province aren't taking any time off.

Stephanie Merrill with the province's Conservation Council tells CHSJ News 16 community groups will be gathering in Fredericton tomorrow to march in an Atlantic-wide day of action, or in this case, a day of "FRACtion."

She says it's encouraging to see such a high level of grassroots involvement.

The march kicks off at noon at the Old Burial Grounds and stops outside the Legislature where various speakers will voice their concerns over fracking, the process where fluid is pumped into formations of rock to release gas.
