Ben Parfitt on the dangers of fracking in today's Vancouver Sun

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.
