Sacred Headwaters Drilling Moratorium Expires in 5 Days
The gas is extracted using fracking an extremely water intensive process that would not sap water from the vital headwaters of these three systems, but would pump toxic fracking fluid into the groundwater. All told the project would produce millions of gallons of waste water per year, water that will have devastating effects on fish and wildlife in the Sacred Headwaters.
The bottom line is THIS CANNOT happen. Fracking has never been done in a salmon bearing watershed and this isn't the place to start. First Nations and other residents in the region have been adamant that this project will not go forward, but they need our support. Please take a few minutes to sign the online petition from Forest Ethics:
and email BC Premier Christy Clark to let her know you oppose drilling in the Sacred Headwaters
