We Want a Frack Free BC
Frack Free BC is a growing movement of people in so-called B.C. working together to hold their government accountable for the province’s biggest climate problem: fracking.
We are a broad-based alliance made up of allied organizations including NGOs, Indigenous partners, grassroots organizations, community groups, and individuals who are organizing their communities to raise awareness and apply pressure to the government to end fracking in BC.
Why? Fracked gas is mostly methane – a dangerous fossil fuel which traps 86 times more heat than the same amount of CO2 over its lifetime. The Montney Shale Formation in northeast BC (where all that gas is fracked from) is Canada’s largest climate bomb, and the 6th largest in the world. Fracking is also the only industry in BC that’s permitted to extract billions of litres of freshwater from local lakes and rivers, pump it full of toxic chemicals, and then dispose of it untreated. Fracking is harming the health of communities near and far from its operations, and fracked gas projects like the Coastal GasLink pipeline are being pushed ahead in violation of Indigenous rights.
We are calling on Premier Eby to stop issuing fracking permits, set a date to end fracking in the province, and support workers and communities to transition to a sustainable economy.
The current members of the Frack Free BC steering committee include Stand.earth, Wilderness Committee, and Dogwood BC.
