Community Meeting Held At Elsipogtog

How this dispute between the First Nations and the province over shale gas testing will wind up is uncertain. 

A community meeting was held yesterday at the Elsipogtog First Nation and there could be more said later today about where the protest is going. 

Mark D'Arcy of the Council of Canadians in Fredericton tells CHSJ News the Alward Government is not backing down and the opposition of the people of Elsipogtog is not diminishing. He's suggesting the dispute could wind up in the courts.

D'Arcy says the First Nations feel more strongly about this issue because if their water gets contaminated, they can't just move away.
