Fracking in Canada

In March 2013 we were working for a Canadian newspaper Les alternatives. We went to Gaspe to tell the story of the fight between inhabitants of Gaspe and the gas companies involved in the nonconventional oil exploitation (fracking) in Quebec. We interviewed various inhabitants of the town including the mayor and 2 residents with drilling operations closer than 1km from their houses. We documented the conflict and made a video for the local organization in order to help promote the cause for environmental protection and regulation regarding fracking.
