Christy Clark clarifying Mike Bernier fracking review comments

In an interview with Sun TV News yesterday, Bernier is quoted as saying, “I’m all in favour of doing a review.”

The New Democrats say in a statement that Bernier is mimicking the NDP’s platform positions that say the party would conduct an independent, expert-led review of fracking.

Clark says Bernier and the Liberals support reviews of fracking, but that support comes from an industry-positive perspective while the NDP is looking for ways to justify halting development. She adds the Liberals have already launched fracking reviews over possible health concerns and water usage, but the ultimate goals of their reviews are to gain knowledge that improves the industry.
