BAPE Independence As Advantagious To Quebec As Shale Gas

BAPE Independence As Advantagious To Quebec As Shale Gas by Michael Binnion, January 22, 2013, Huffington Post
The decision of the past Government of Quebec to reverse course and order a BAPE review was a financial disaster for Questerre and others. Having lost much of our stock value due to well delays, we lost most of the balance, when the BAPE stunned us with its recommendations. The BAPE was so independent that it felt free to completely ignore its mandate. It was asked to review best practices around the world and make recommendations on how Quebec might proceed. The report largely ignored the science and reality of proven experience in other places. It didn’t even bother to go to the world’s leaders at resource development: Alberta or Norway. Rather, after a tour of Quebec and Pennsylvania it pandered to rumors, concerns, fears, and allegations started by US environmentalists. As one anonymous observer said at the time “it’s written in crayon”. [Emphasis added]
