Montreal - Today, Climate Justice Montreal released Burning Water, a primer on shale gas extraction - or "fracking" - in Quebec. The publication outlines the extent of current and future fracking activities, profiling the major corporate players and where they currently hold permits for extraction and are, in many cases, already drilling exploratory wells.

"We want to present this information in an easily accesible, yet comprehensive manner to help grow the constantly builing resistance in Quebec," said Kawina Robichaud, an organizer with Climate Justice Montreal and one othe publications authors.

The publication highlights some of the major corporations involved in extraction, as well as current and future hotspots for resistance.
