Intro in French by Johanne Dion on her FB page posting of the video:
Un autre excellent documentaire de notre ami Will Koop. Il documente les ravages subis par la communauté de Fox Creek en Alberta, fracturée hydrauliquement puis secouée maintes fois par des séismes, sans compter les nombreuses fuites de contamination. Et tout çà, tenez-vous bien, pour alimenter l`extraction des sales sables bitumineux!!!!
Et tout cela dans le plus grand silence média. La première à le dénoncer publiquement sur son site Web? Jessica Ernst, bien sûr!
Broken Sprocket in the Fox Creek Hub? Alberta’s “Ignorant and Brute Force” Frack Experiments by Will Koop, Aug 10, 2019, www.bctwa.org
On July 11, 2019, the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) was contacted about a significant toxic spill and H2S venting event, six kilometres southwest of the Town of Fox Creek, Alberta. It was coming from a leaking abandoned gas well, presumably impacted by a “frac hit.” The spill was not reported in the media. Two weeks later, energy corporation Paramount Resources sent out an emergency response plan to the Town of Fox Creek, warning residents about possible evacuation due to hydrogen sulphide gas (H2S) from Paramount’s facilities and operations. H2S is a deadly gas, and extremely dangerous.
The video presents the visuals and context of brute force fracking operations in the Fox Creek – Duvernay geological play, and their purpose to provide unconventional condensate and gas to feed the hungry Alberta Tar Sands flow of bitumen.
A comment on youtube:
Thank you for posting. What you exposed is gut turning. Greed really is the most deadly of all mental illness.
A review on the clip in from the USA:
Well done video for explanation of what is going on up there. Crazy dangerous!
The failures to alert, post in media–what control the industry has.
The lowest levels of H2S will cause negative effects lasting the rest of one’s lifetime.
The releases documented here should be cause for shutting down their operations already.
The government is sanctioning death to the environment and the people and wildlife that are there.
Thank you for getting this out to the public!
