I would love to see Alberta and British Columbia not ban fracking but ban workers from the Maritimes. You would soon see people from the east coast look at fracking again.

If fracking was so damaging, there would not be an ounce of drinkable water in the west. Most of people’s fears of fracking came from an American documentary. We all saw the flames coming from the water tap. What we all didn’t see was the producers admit, years later, that it was all staged.

How many homes in Nova Scotia are paid with by Alberta oil money wages? God forbid we advance this have-not province to where we could survive and thrive. Our biggest export is angry but talented trades people leaving.
