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
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.

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.
