Gallant Says His Position On Shale Gas Has Been Vindicated

Provincial Liberal leader Brian Gallant tells CHSJ News he was on the right track all along by calling for a moratorium on shale gas development in light of a report compiled by 14 scientists for Environment Canada.  The Alward Government has denounced that as dithering and pandering for votes.

The report concludes we need more research into the long term effects of shale gas exploration and fracking socially, economically and environmentally.

Gallant says you can't regulate the risks if you don't know enough about what they are and it could be decades before you do but the gas isn't going anywhere.
