Cardy Condemns Violence At Shale Gas Protest

The violence erupting outside of Rexton at the fracking protest site ultimately undermining the cause. 

That word coming from the provincial NDP leader Dominic Cardy, who tells CHSJ News the second you break the law, the focus shifts from what you are protesting to the tactics being used. Cardy says these types of violent tactics have to be condemned, and that you can't change laws by breaking laws.

After several heated days, tensions seem to be cooling. Members of the Elsipogtog First Nation attending a community meeting today to discuss next steps. The Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs voicing their solidarity with the nation and sending Grand Chief Derek Nepinak to the province.
