‎”Distribution of black shale with shale gas potential in Ontario”

That map is from the 2010-2011 annual report of the Environmental Commissioner of Ontario – http://www.ecoissues.ca/index.php/Shale_Gas_and_Hydraulic_Fracking#The_Ontario_Government_and_Shale_Gas

The full report is posted here – http://www.eco.on.ca/index.php/en_US/pubs/annual-reports-and-supplements/2010-11-annual-report—engaging-solutions

This map from the report indicates that fracking may occur in many locations which aren’t yet highlighted in the maps on this page of the “Stop Fracking Ontario” web site – https://stopfrackingontario.wordpress.com/fracking/in-ontario

Note: the Environmental Commissioner’s report does not acknowledge many of the problems and threats that come with fracking.  Yet, the statements from the Ministry of the Environment and the Ministry of Natural Resources in an appendix are even less critical toward the prospects of fracking in Ontario; those two Ministries mainly suggest that if there is fracking, it should be fine.

    We all have a right to clean water, air and soil. Fracking is a crime which poisons our water table, contaminating our water, soil and air which in turn gets into our crops, farm animals and people in the areas affected. Stop fracking….Kensky

    Stop Farcking, indeed!! How are we going to convince the public, politicians, and petroleum corporations of the dangers of fracking ? It is hard to know where to begin… Margo

    There is another oil spill related to fracking in Alberta: http://mudandwater.org/2012/01/17/fracking-causes-oil-spill-in-alberta/ One problem is that we do not understand aquifers enough to be able to predict what will happen when we blast through them. The results are unpredictable.
