Quotes

"This support from the Government of Canada will make it possible for Cape Breton University to gather invaluable information on expanding our international base of students, faculty and projects CBU continues to build its international profile and this marketing re as well as investments in new equipment are helping us in this regard."
"If this is the position (of the province) 10 years from now, I'd say they are probably not really listening to the facts."
The ban was quickly criticized by Finance Minister Joe Oliver. "Fracking has been going on in British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan for over 50 years…[and] there've been 175,000 wells drilled using fracking and not a single case of drinkable water contamination,” Oliver told the Canadian Press. “When a government steps back from the responsible development of its resources and that development doesn't create an environmental risk, there are economic consequences inevitably to that and there's a lost opportunity."
"I just hope it's done safely for both people and the environment."
