To the Expositor:
Congratulations to Zareh Oshagan for the letter that appeared in The Expositor of January 22, 2014 (‘A description of fracking drawn from public domain documents,’ page 5).
It is obvious that the writer went to considerable effort to gather factually verifiable information regarding the long term environmental dangers associated with fracking.
The province of British Columbia is the only Canadian province that does require drilling companies to divulge the complete list of chemical compounds that they pump down into their wells—and it is a frightening list.
That list of chemical compounds may be accessed at fracfocus.org.
To allow the injection of all those chemicals into our groundwater is unthinkable.
We must act to prevent this craziness.Mike Wilton Dominion Bay
