Another Call For A Shale Gas Moratorium

The New Brunswick Federation of Labour is calling for a moratorium on all shale gas development until environmental, safety and health concerns are satisfied.

Labour Federation President Patrick Colford tells CHSJ News doesn't see a lot of jobs being created by shale gas.

Colford also questions how many local people will be hired because he claims not a lot were when SWN Resources was doing its seismic testing a few months ago. He also says there should be no fracking until the First Nations give their consent to it being done on their traditional lands.
