"We need a rational debate on the issue."
"People need to be informed."
"We are gathering information for New Brunswickers."
We here at The Purple Violet Press have heard these statements and similar others since we began covering this issue back in early June. From industry to government, to protesters and pundits in between, many are calling for a dialogue between those for and against the shale gas industry in New Brunswick. So, we ask, why hasn't it happened yet? When is it going to happen and who is willing to organize it? Most of all we ask, has the time for rational debate passed us by?
