Subject: Public Inquiry needed to properly investigate deep social and environmental harms of fracking, coalition says
 Union of British Columbia Indian Chiefs
VANCOUVER � A promised �review� of natural gas industry fracking operations should be broadened to a full Public Inquiry that examines all aspects of the dangerous gas extraction technique, says a coalition of community, First Nation and environmental organizations.

The call on the new BC government is to broaden a promise first made by the NDP during the lead-up to the spring provincial election, and comes on the heels of new revelations about the fracking process, including:

  • Escalating water usage by fracking companies.
  • Poor or misleading consultations with First Nations.
  • Widespread industry non-compliance with relevant provincial water laws through the construction of dozens of unlicensed dams.
  • Record-setting induced earthquakes at BC fracking operations.

�We believe that the NDP�s campaign promise to appoint a scientific panel to review fracking won�t be enough to fully address the true risks of deploying this brute-force technology throughout northeast BC. Current realities dictate that we need a wide-ranging, public inquiry,� says Ben Parfitt, a resource policy analyst with the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, one of 17 groups making today�s call.

The previous government ignored a call for such an inquiry in 2011.
