Thursday anti-shale gas protest - week 5

Yesterday's press conference announcing a provincial coalition against shale gas shows protesters haven't given up the fight for a ban on the industry in New Brunswick. That fight continued today as upwards of 50 people came and went during the four hour protest held in Fredericton in front of the Centennial Building on King Street. Premier David Alward spoke to the group for a few minutes, however, he did so while no media was on hand to capture his comments.
