Canada : ANTI-SHALE GAS ALLIANCE sues Govt. over plans of developing industry in NEW BRUNSWICK.
Accusing Charter of Rights and Freedoms violations, the alliance, which stands for 22 community organizations, and the three other petitioners, submitted a notice of action and statement of claim to the Court of Queen's Bench in Saint John on Monday.
They have asked for a ban on the development of "unconventional oil and gas exploration" until the government is able to establish "beyond a reasonable doubt and with scientific certainty that it will not contribute to climate change, nor to the contamination of the water, air and land use which causes harm to the health of the plaintiffs and their future generations."
