A Christmas wish: don’t support fracking

Open Letter to Yukon Energy:

Open Letter to Yukon Energy:

All I want for Christmas is for you folks to take down that insulting sign on our power plant.

Thousands of Yukoners told you - via a petition that was presented in the Yukon legislature last month - that we do not want or need fracked gas. Yet there it is at the bottom of Robert Service Way, the under-construction LNG (read “fracked”) gas plant, and then just beyond that the offensive sign. Let me repeat that it is not our needs that power what you do. (One wonders whose needs do?)

I hope Santa leaves lumps of coal in all your stockings. Indeed, scientists are telling us now that the production, processing and consumption of fracked gas is worse for the environment than coal!
