The CEO of the Greater Moncton Chamber of Commerce says New Brunswick has so many natural resources which are going untapped.
Carol O’Reilly says the business community is in support of more exploration and resource development in the province and that includes fracking.
She says, “We are not capitalizing on what is available here with our natural resources. I would think the the majority of our members would feel the same way as well.”
While she understands the Gallant government wants to do its due diligence through a moratorium, O’Reilly says given the province’s bleak fiscal situation, the business community would like to see the process move quicker.
