Centennial Building shale gas protest - week 4

Anti-shale gas protesters haven't given up the fight to get a ban on the industry in New Brunswick. Upwards of 50 people arrived at the Centennial Building in Fredericton for the fourth Thursday in a row today, to continue to make the Alward administration aware of their sentiments. Although an announcement was made recently to halt shale gas exploration work in the province, the protesters say they aren't going away until they get what they want. However, no one from government appeared at the rally to speak to protesters today as happened the three previous Thursdays.
