The Vancouver Sun today published Ben Parfitt's op ed on the dangers of "fracking" in Northern BC. (Fracking is hydraulic fracturing: a method of extracting gas by injecting fluid and sand into cracks in rock formations to force them further open.) A group of citizens in the Peace Region — Peace Environment and Safety Trustees Society (PESTS) — is calling for an inquiry into the health risks from fracking. Read the op ed here: PESTS sour on fracking, want inquiry. And if you're in the Vancouver area, hear more from Ben at a panel presentation on fracking at the Vancouver Public Library on March 16.
