Fracking Forum On Port Au Port Peninsula, NL

VOCM reporting.

Provincial government members will attend a public forum today on the controversial proposal to conduct fracking activity on the Port au Port Peninsula. Hydraulic fracturing involves the injection of water and chemicals into rock to break up the structure and extract oil.

MHAs Vaughn Granter and Tony Cornect will be in attendance during today's forum, scheduled to get underway this afternoon at 2:00 pm at the Maria Regina Parish Hall on the Port au Port Peninsula. Granter says it's important for people to get as much information as possible about the issue.

Let’s hope they’ll be working with the best facts and science.
