We expect drilling in the area surrounding Hillsborough will commence this spring or summer. In particular, parents must become more aware of how this industry may change our community. This is something that could affect every part of our daily lives including heavy equipment traffic, noise, vibration and lights, possible contamination of drinking water, possible decrease in property values and, most importantly, the safely and well-being of our children.
It’s something we cannot ignore any longer. Please plan to attend one of these informal question and answer sessions to be held on:
Monday, February 11th, at 7pm AND
Monday, February 18th, at 7pm
WEPAC has invited a former frack site worker to the meetings so he can answer your questions based on his first-hand experiences.
Please do not depend upon our local media coverage to inform you on what shale gas and oil will mean to our community. You must do your OWN RESEARCH. Start by reading this fact sheet, released by the Council of Canadians regarding the Myths vs. Realities of Fracking. You can find more resources on our About Fracking page.
