Sign the Fracking Moratorium Petition

An NWT Legislative Assembly on-line petition is urging the Government of the Northwest Territories to put a moratorium on horizontal hydraulic fracturing (fracking) until a comprehensive, transparent and public review of the cumulative environmental, social and economic risks and benefits of the process is completed under Part 5.1 of the Mackenzie Valley Resource Management Act, and the NWT public clearly indicates whether the risks and benefits are acceptable or not.

It also urges the GNWT to shift economic development away from the exploitation of fossil fuels and towards economic diversification based on renewable energy and conservation.
