Green Party Leader Calls Shale Gas Regulations "A Myth"

Provincial Green Party leader David Coon isn't buying assurances from Premier David Alward about provincial regulations being strong enough to protect the environment when it comes to shale gas testing.

Coon says the regulations are more like conditions that can be negotiated away.

He can't believe SWN Resources got a blanket exemption to carry out seismic testing for shale gas in provincial wetlands.
