Local Activists Backing Rexton Protests

Protestors in Saint John are standing behind the anti-shale gas movement on the Elsipogtog First Nation.

Joel Butler was in attendance at a demonstration in uptown Saint John this afternoon.

Butler tells CHSJ News the provincial government's idea of consultation is to share its plans with the First Nations when it should be seeking their permission to allow for shale gas testing on their land.

Further talks between native leaders and Premier David Alward are expected to continue.
