Trout River residents demand answers about fracking by Paul Hutchings, May 02, 2013, The Western Star
William Lummis of Trout River said he has a bad feeling about the project. “I get people want jobs here, I understand the appeal but this is a small company doing risky drilling and it seems like they don’t have all the regulations in place to cover fracking,” he said. “Something is bound to go wrong and I have a feeling that Newfoundland will get stuck with it when something does go wrong.”
