Political Panel: Fracking and the Environment Minister
The province's municipal leaders came close last weekend to asking for a moratorium on shale gas exploration. The vote was 18 to 22 and it came after the group heard a presentation on the province's shale gas plans from Environment Minister Margaret-Ann Blaney. Now some are wondering if the minister charged with protecting the environment is too cozy with the industry. Michael Camp, Lisa Keenan and Luc Desjardins look at the issue.
