Studies show that hydraulic fracturing, otherwise known as fracking, contaminates drinking water, triggers earth tremors — with a 4.6 magnitude earthquake recorded in BC — and leads to rising carbon pollution through the emission of highly potent methane gas.
The Green Party of Canada is calling for a national moratorium on fracking. Join the campaign to halt this destructive practice from coast to coast to coast!
In spite of growing opposition, moratoria on fracking are only in place in Québec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and the Yukon — leaving fragile water systems and the communities that depend on them at risk. A national moratorium is the only way of ensuring our water and our communities are protected across the country.
Call on the Liberal government to end fracking in ALL communities and backyards across Canada!
Fracking has proven to be hugely damaging to local communities in Canada and around the world. Sign on now to express your opposition to this highly destructive fossil fuel extraction. Let's put fracking behind us and embrace clean, sustainable, and innovative options to build a brighter future. Together.
Adding your name to this petition will go a long way towards convincing the government to right this wrong. The future of our water and the well-being of our communities are at stake. Thank you for standing up for a cleaner, more sustainable future for all Canadians.
