Fracking for shale gas in BC

Today we released a report on "fracking" In northeastern BC: a controversial process that gas companies are using to extract natural gas from deeply buried shale formations. The provincial government supports the industry with millions of dollars in subsidies, in spite of the health and environmental risks of fracking — and while the companies profit, British Columbians aren't getting much in return.

CCPA-BC researcher Ben Parfitt travelled to the heart of fracking territory with photographer Garth Lenz. Check out this short video to see what they found:
