Fredericton, N.B. – Conservation Council of New Brunswick’s Executive Director, Lois Corbett, was quoted in a recent CTV Atlantic News story applauding NB government’s decision to extend the fracking moratorium indefinitely.

“Today, New Brunswick joins jurisdictions all around the world in making the right decision,” said Corbett.

Lois told CTV Atlantic News that the Gallant Government’s decision to ban fracking was good public policy because it puts protecting our water at the forefront.

Corbett went on to state in a CCNB press release issued yesterday (Friday, May, 27th): “It seems apparent to me that the government reviewed the recommendations from the Commission in a fair and balanced way. It used the evidence it had from scientists and the public, to help inform its decision.”
