Shale gas protest on June 18 in Montreal
The call for a moratorium on shale gas development in Quebec will reach new heights on June 18.
Equiterre will join thousands of citizens from across the province – environmental coalitions, citizens' groups, political leaders, etc. – for a protest march in downtown Montreal.
We are asking the government for:
- an immediate ban on fracking
- assurance that the Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) process will be rigourous, public and transparent
- a more credible and representative evaluation committee
Place: Corner of René-Lévesque and St-Urbain (Place des Arts metro)
Time: Saturday June 18 at 2 p.m. Walk towards the premier's Montreal office (corner Sherbooke and McGill College) leaves at 2:30 p.m.
