Frack Back! Grassroots Peoples Prepare to Sue Southwestern Energy, 
Canada and New Brunswick Governments to Stop Shale Gas Development
Group Charges Violations of Constitutional, Aboriginal, Environmental and Human Rights Laws


A group of courageous citizens is expected to announce the court filing of the ‘Peoples Lawsuit’ against the province of New Brunswick, the government of Canada and Southwestern Energy Resources Canada Inc. (SWN) in Moncton on Thursday, June 26, 2014. The media is invited to listen in at the Moncton Library, 644 Main at 2 p.m. 

The ‘Peoples Lawsuit’ is being prepared to demand that the courts permanently remove the threats and risks from shale gas development that they are facing.  The group of individuals and their lawyer, Larry Kowalchuk, believe that the governments of Canada and New Brunswick and their courts have attacked their rights to object and granted illegal approval to SWN to develop shale gas, ignore environmental protection laws and unlawfully use police and malicious lawsuits to suppress and silence protectors of civil and human rights.

After local activist Willi Nolan was named in an injunction and SLAPP lawsuit last October, which she is defending on behalf of herself and “Jane Doe,” she retained a lawyer and invited some of her friends and neighbours to launch private lawsuits.  

Spokespeople for Peoples Lawsuit will be on hand to take questions from the media.
