I'm a community organizer and facilitator from Saskatchewan and I am in New York City for the People's Climate March. I first got involved in climate change organizing 13 years ago, when a group called The Climate Change Caravan biked across Canada.
As shale gas has become the defining election issue for New Brunswickers going to the polls Monday, the Council of Canadians, along with several allies in the anti-shale gas movement, released the results of a questionnaire sent to all parties asking them to clarify their positions.
The Yukon, like BC, is home to some of the largest shale gas deposits on the planet. The difference is that BC has already gone wild on fracking, whereas the Yukon has shielded itself with a moratorium.
