Politics in New Brunswick sometimes feels like a daycare. I said here last week the Liberal party would likely call for a moratorium on shale gas drilling just because….
Does everything have to be politicized? I remember when Bernard Lord in 1999 rejected McKenna’s economic development approach calling for a “made in New Brunswick” model. That was a joke. It was purely for political aims to cast doubt on the Liberals and claim there was a ‘better way’. That little political move set us back years.
Now here we go with the provincial Liberals. I am sure to be dropped off certain Christmas card lists but I call it like I see it. The Liberals are wrong on the natural gas issue and I think it is a callous political play.
And, for what it is worth, most of the problems displayed in Gasland (referenced in this article) were associated with the first generation of shale gas drilling and most have been addressed.
