Ban Fracking in Grey County

Hydraulic fracturing (fracking) and transportation of natural gas releases methane into the atmosphere and contributes to the problem of global warming.

Additionally, fracking:

  • uses millions of litres of fresh water and contributes to the depletion of local fresh water resources
  • involves the use of large quantities of chemicals, some of which pose significant environmental and health risks
  • has been scientifically linked to unsafe levels of contamination of well water with methane and other contaminates
  •  well pads emit carcinogenic & toxic air pollutants during natural gas extraction and production

It is for these reasons that we call upon the Council of Grey County to enact a ban on hydraulic fracturing in Grey County, Ontario.  

We'll be delivering this petition to Grey County Council in person in April 2015.
