Fracking Action North (FAN) is a coalition of NWT organizations, including Alternatives North, Ecology North, the NWT Chapter Council of Canadians, Canadian Physicians for the Environment, and individuals/citizens who are concerned that hydraulic fracturing (fracking) in the NWT is proceeding without a full and transparent consideration of all of the health, social, environmental and economic costs and benefits.
FAN invites all NWT residents to learn more about fracking, and the potential costs and benefits of this technology. Please browse our information and resources for links to many scientific journals and peer-reviewed articles on the impacts of fracking on human health, water quality and quantity, air quality and social and community well-being.

Thank you for reading this story…
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
