‘Frack hell is imminent’
Speaking out has pretty much cost Jessica Ernst her business where “she did environmental impact assessments and environmental protection plans for oil and gas companies.”
Ernst isn’t surprised more and more people are opposed to oil and gas development in their neighbourhoods.
“Yes, everybody has the right to be very afraid and very suspicious,” she said. “I have learned painfully that I trust no politician in this province, I trust no regulator staff at the ERCB and I trust nobody at Alberta Environment. And I certainly do not trust the companies. I think they know they are contaminating the water. And I think they knew before they even started that they were going to and that’s why they fractured as many communities as possible in secret. I don’t believe Rosebud’s the only place where they fractured drinking water aquifers in Alberta.”
I will get a copy of her presentation posted in a little bit.
