Over the past two years, several members of NOFRAC applied for information through the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act about fossil fuel exploration and extraction activities in Nova Scotia. As pertinent documents were delivered to NOFRAC members, we became aware of serious concerns for our environment, our health, and for Nova Scotia.
