Mary Gorman seems to have vendetta against the CNLOPB and CNSLOPB. She is doing this through her friends the Coalition St.Laurent which is Quebec based. Quebec is no friend of Atlantic Canada and in particular NL.
She completely ignores and downgrades the years of experience that both offshore boards have in regulating and supervising our offshore exploration. For example CNLOPB has considerable experience in the development of Hibernia, Terra Nova, White Rose and now Hebron. They have environmentally safely done this in the harsh environment of Iceburg and Hurricane Alley.
Nine offshore wells in the Gulf has already been safely drilled. She completely ignores NL place in the Gulf. I will remind her that NL brought our offshore resources into Canada when we joined confereration.

Yeah Mary Gorman is at it again. This woman and her ilk claim that hydraulic fracking onshore in Nova Scotia would pollute the Gulf. Hogwash pollute the Gulf along with other agricultural waste. At some point when you people realize that this is a combination of the boy who cried wolf and chicken little.
