NBers Weigh In On Oil And Gas Exploration

NB is OK with oil and gas, not so much fracking--that finding from an independent study by the University of Moncton and UNB.

Out of the 604 New Brunswickers polled, 2 out of 3 felt oil and gas should be an important part of our economy. But according to chair Dr Roger Oulette, some conditions apply--for example, whatever exploration is done should be subject to appropriate regulations so our wildlife and water supplies are protected.

Oulette is the chair of a forum discussing these issues in Moncton from June 3-5. It's being held at the Delta Bousejour. To learn more about the research and see a full copy of the survey results, click here
