LATEST DAY OF FRACTION - Sept 17th, 2013

Don’t Frack PEI is holding a Public Meeting on Tuesday September 17th from 7pm to 9pm at Murphy’s Community Centre, Richmond Street, Charlottetown. Featuring Prof. Peter Clancy and Eliza Knockwood, and a song by Teresa Doyle.

Come and hear about the growing opposition to fracking across the Maritimes, and how fracking has no ‘social license’. We need your input as we discuss what we should do next to stop fracking from coming to PEI.
