Gallant Wants Alward To Slow Down On Fracking

The Opposition wants Premier Alward to hit the pause button on fracking.

Liberal Leader Brian Gallant says they have repeatedly expressed their concerns about the government blindly pushing ahead with shale gas development without addressing people's concerns in a meaningful way.

Gallant says people in the province do not trust the Premier when it comes to this topic adding he's also ignored the recommendations of the Chief Medical officer of Health, Dr. Eilish Cleary.

He says the Alward government has failed to provide the reassurances New Brunswickers want with respect to the impact of shale gas development on the environment and human health.
