Lawsuit has broad implications for fracking across continent

Lawsuit has broad implications for fracking across continent by Kelly Cryderman, Postmedia News, April 27, 2011.
The lawyer leading a $33 million lawsuit against energy company Encana, the Alberta government and the province’s energy regulator says the case speaks to broader environmental concerns across North America about fracking. “It’s very much the same issues all over,” said Murray Klippenstein, a Toronto-based litigator. Klippenstein is representing landowner Jessica Ernst, who has long argued that coal-bed methane drilling around her Rosebud-area home northeast of Calgary has resulted in the pollution of her well water. ”The hydraulic fracturing issues that Jessica raises in her lawsuit are coming up more and more publicly, with more and more concerns, not only in Alberta, but in B.C. and Quebec, and all over the United States,” he said.
