Ban Fracking in Grey County: Petition

Please support a petition to ban fracking in the Owen Sound area

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.
