The Rural Community of Upper Miramichi fully supports the shale gas industry in New Brunswick when done in a responsible manner. Protecting the environment is our highest priority. We know that shale gas has been ongoing with no issues. Our region is in need of employment and without industry, we will surely see more decline in population. Our population is over 2300. We need government to move forward and remove the moratorium on shale gas development.
