Alberta Minister should do more to protect groundwater

Minister should do more to protect groundwater by Nielle Hawkwood, March 12, 2012, Rockyview Weekly
I attended a meeting of Action for Agriculture at Balzac on March 2. At that meeting, I asked the Minister of Environment and Water why her government has not declared a moratorium on fracking in Alberta. In her response, she stated that fracking has been going on in Alberta for 60 years and that no moratorium is planned. … From Elnora to Rosebud to Nanton to the Blood Reserve, there are landowners no longer able to drink their water or water their stock after fracking has been done in their area. The minister has stated that our water and agricultural productivity are vital. Yesterday would not be soon enough for her government to walk the talk.
