Hydraulic Fracturing and Well-Being in Newfoundland and Labrador

Fracking is an issue of great importance to all of Newfoundland and Labrador, but particularly to our own diocese of Corner Brook and Labrador.  The Roman Catholic Religious Leaders of Newfoundland and Labrador have sent a submission, “Hydraulic Fracturing and Well-Being in Newfoundland and Labrador”, to the NL Hydraulic Fracturing Review Panel for their consideration and have requested to be part of the public consultations.

 

The submission concerns itself with the threats to human rights and the environment which are posed by using the hydraulic fracturing process.  The full document can be viewed here.  It has been included in the documents on the NL Hydraulic Fracturing Review Panel website ( www.nlhfrp.ca )and can also be viewed on that site by clicking on “Documents Under Consideration by the Panel” and going to “Letters from Community Organizations and Groups”.
