Where did AER’s Executive VP Mark Taylor go? He was Encana manager when the company illegally frac’d Rosebud’s drinking water aquifers, then lied about it to 200 concerned community members, promising Encana would only frac far below fresh water zones (same lie touted by frac’ers everywhere), after area water wells had already gone bad, and were being investigated by – of course – the criminal, with regulator and govt blessings.

Frac Water Orgy Announced by AER’s Mark Taylor (ex-manager Encana who lied to Rosebud, said Encana would never frac their drinking water). No Wonder AEP is Taking Water Licences Away from Farmers/Ranchers: AER grants 10 year blanket approval water licences; Companies need not know where they will frac, or how much they will frac or where they’ll get their water from. Companies “expected” to look at sources other than fresh drinking water, eg hydrocarbon contaminated groundwater, but not if contaminated with methane!

Most disgusting, when he was an Encana manager, Mark Taylor propagandized children!

EnCana frac’d the blue icing; Dr. Tony Ingraffea Presentation with Jessica Ernst at Halifax, Nova Scotia

Taylor did not tell the children Encana (Ovintiv) frac’d the blue icing – Rosebud’s and Pavillion’s drinking water aquifers.

Nasty Encana (now Ovintiv)! Those poor kids being propagandized by frac cake.

Here’s how Encana (Ovintiv) really frac’s us:

And, here’s some Encana (Ovintiv) toxic tasty icing dumped on foodland in my community:

A little chocolate icing to go with your $400 module Mr. Taylor?
