An anti-fracking resolution presented to the Hamilton City Council by the local branch of the Council of Canadians is available below. The resolution has been submitted to the City Clerk with a request that it be referred to a Council Committee or staff for consideration and a report. Local members are working to enlist the support of his Councillor Terry Whitehead and will be contacting other Councillors to obtain their support. There is a chance the resolution may come up at the Council Meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 12.

Other groups who are committed to protecting the environment from this dangerous practice are encouraged to consider similar action in their own communities.
