Mayor of Quispamsis Says No Seismic Testing Is Being Planned

Quispamsis Mayor Murray Driscoll says residents don't need to worry about seismic testing or shale gas drilling in the town -- he says no requests have been made by any energy companies.

He says companies usually pat the municipality the courtesy of asking for permission and he say there have been no requests.

Hampton Council deciding unanimously last night to not allow seismic testing within town limits -- this after a group of about 50 protesters stood along the McKay Highway in opposition to preliminary testing in the area.
