Former Mayor to speak on shale gas extraction



On Saturday, October 22nd at 1:30 pm in UNB's MacLaggan Hall Auditorium, Calvin Tillman, former mayor of Dish, Texas, will speak about his first-hand experience with shale gas extraction in the town during his time in office. Tillman, seen in the shale gas documentary, Gasland, will discuss potential problems the province's citizens may have with property values, well water, air quality and your pristine environment once shale gas arrives in New Brunswick. Tillman will be available for a Q & A session after his lecture.
