The Atlantic Region of the Public Service Alliance of Canada and the Miramichi Regional Aboriginal People’s Circle stand in solidarity with the New Brunswick Anti-Shale Gas Alliance. Their commitment to protect the environment and safe drinking water for future generations are inspiring.
We stand opposed to the destructive and dangerous practice of hydraulic fracturing which puts profit before the environment, before our communities and before the rights of First Nation’s people.
We endorse the leadership role being done by the New Brunswick Anti-Shale Gas Alliance. We also call on the New Brunswick government to have an open dialogue with the New Brunswick Anti-Shale Gas Alliance and work constructively to protect the environment.
Regional Executive Vice-President, PSAC Atlantic
