It is encouraging to hear that the Elsipogtog First Nation people were successful in their effort to get the court to
discontinue the injunction obtained by SWN Shale and Gas Company which preventing them from obstructing
the progress of SWN to develop staging and storage areas for its fracking operation.

Noted the story, but I also note that the reason, J. Rideout gave in his judgement for not extending the injunction, was that no-one was currently protesting or trying to prevent the company access to the site or their equipment. Will the protests resume and will they be able to stop the Company?

Before we all celebrate maybe we should understand exactly what the judge meant with the reason given for not extending the injunction...wiggle room here for oil company to slip by while no protesters around?? If this truly halts Big Oil, then kudos to one down...but how many other assaults on the land to go??

Excellent! Someone with some sense. Everyone, please, support the First Nations of Canada in their fight against fracking.
