Cheapskate Aquifer-Fracker Encana, sitting on $Billions, kills $50,000.00 annual “corporate partnership” funding to Rosebud Theatre, blames economy. Greed & nastiness more likely reasons.

Yet another Encana lie? In public community meetings, Encana promises that it “shares” its profits with communities disrupted to get those profits.

Rosebud’s aquifers were illegally fractured by Encana 13 years ago. They remain explosively contaminated. No repair or clean-up in sight.

Summer 2017 and on the Labour Day weekend, Encana’s compressors near the hamlet of Rosebud and Ernst’s home have been rattling and roaring as if preparing to explode.

Why such stingy “sharing” with Rosebud?

2005 10 12: EnCana donates $3 Million to Colorado Mtn College, creating an odd couple 

The deal between EnCana Oil & Gas and my alma mater Colorado Mountain College stinks worse than a frat house with a gas leak during pledge week. … In just a short period the Canadian supercorp has had numerous violations and racked up record fines with the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission. EnCana has polluted water supplies, caused evacuations of homes, talked of outsourcing Colorado jobs to Chinese workers and has been blamed by residents for tumors and other sudden ailments. Most recently, a gas leak in San Miguel County was so extensive it created a no-fly zone with a 10-mile radius. The problems of a Silt woman dealing with an EnCana gas leak were so severe that her story made it to the floor of the U.S. Senate. Along comes a $3 million donation to the beloved CMC. Boy, is EnCana slick. I don’t know what’s worse: EnCana’s cheap attempt to buy public favor or CMC agreeing to it. [Emphasis added]

2005 01 Rosebud’s water reservoir blows up in an explosion. The investigation blames “an accumulation of gases.” It cost the community hundreds of thousands of dollars to replace.

March 2004: Encana illegally fractured, in secret, directly into Rosebud drinking water aquifers, contaminating them, continues to refuse to disclose drilling and frac chemicals injected into the aquifers and above the Base of Groundwater Protection on 200 shallow frac’d gas wells in the community.
