Premier Clark, Don't Give Away Our Fresh Water for Fracking

BC Premier Premier Christy Clark is poised to give away 3 BILLION litres of water every year from the Fort Nelson River in northeast BC to Encana for fracking. This river is the lifeblood of the Fort Nelson First Nation.

And that’s just the beginning. There are several more approvals in the works for long-term water withdrawal licenses that will give away trillions of litres of fresh water to shale gas companies—all without proper consultation with First Nations or the public!

Fort Nelson First Nation has worked with the natural gas industry and government to provide economic opportunities for it members and the entire province through responsible resource development. But our concerns regarding irresponsible, unsustainable water use have gone ignored. Now our community is forced to stand in defence of our life-sustaining waters and responsible development.

Fort Nelson First Nation is calling on Premier Christy Clark to cease the issuance of all long-term water withdrawal licenses to the shale gas industry until the Province has thoroughly consulted with First Nations and the public in the development of a clear, responsible, and effective water management plan. This plan must include adequate baseline studies, proper regional monitoring, cumulative impact assessment, and protected areas to sustain fish and wildlife habitat.

We believe that shale gas development can occur without full-scale damage to our rivers, lakes and streams, but it will take a strong commitment from local communities, governments and oil and gas companies to do the right thing. Please join us in sending this message to Premier Christy Clark and help us protect our water!

      Fort Nelson band's anti-fracking petition draws overwhelming response

      When a small native band in British Columbia launched an online petition to oppose increased water use by the gas industry, it was hoping for 500 signatures. A month later, the Fort Nelson First Nation has nearly 24,000 signatories on the petition and letter to government posted on Change.org under the heading "Don't Give Away Our Fresh Water for Fracking."

      The poisonous solvents that are pumped into the ground with the fresh water are dangerous to the health of Canadians.

      Available, fresh water is the lifeblood of the whole planet. Destroying it for short term gain means the current government is more stupid than anyone thought.
