Dear Manitobans - Fracking May Well be Coming to a Neighbourhood, Town or Park Near You!

....and there will be "frack-all" you can do about it!
Please read the Winnipeg Free Press article,  "Shale gas seen as possible new resource here," then watch and learn of this horrific practice on:
CBC -The Nature of Things with David Suzuki - - Shattered Ground

As reported in the Winnipeg Free Press, exploration for shale in Manitoba is underway with the potential for the industry to develop within the next ten years.

The potential shale formation runs from the Manitoba-Saskatchewan border to Treheme, including the Manitoba Escarpment, Swan Valley, the Porcupine Hills and around Riding Mountain.
Province's geologists are (as of January 2012) four years into a study of the province's shale gas potential.

It is also reported in the news that Petroleum Services Association of Canada predicted 300 new fracked wells will be drilled in Manitoba.

PLT: Make no mistake - if the industry considers this viable, it WILL happen here! Our moronic leaders care nothing about the health or well-being of you, me, nor, apparently, themselves, as long as oil-industry bottom-lines and raw greed are satiated! Watch for it - it's coming. Mark my word. Because we no longer live in a democracy. Neither you nor I have ANY power. Get used to it.
