A letter to the New Brunswick Premier, David Alward, has been sent from Maritime Conference in regard to the protest near Elsipogtog/Rexton, NB.

Premier David Alward re protest

United Church members, and indeed all New Brunswickers, are encouraged to write to their MLA’s to express their concerns about the use of violence against peaceful people, the persistence of the Province in pursuing the dangerous practice of fracking, and the lack of appropriate discussion and dialogue toward peaceful resolution.

    Thank you Meggin and David for doing this letter! It is very important to me that my Church does speak up and out.

    Thanks for this wonderful letter. In terms of care for the earth and solidarity with First Nations, you have made a brave and informed public witness on behalf of our church.
