Opponents of shale gas development in Quebec have warned that they might engage in civil disobedience to keep the industry from taking off in the province.
One protest leader said people would tie themselves to gas companies’ machinery and block their trucks if exploration activities went ahead.
Several dozen opponents of shale gas are marching through Quebec to warn of its possible environmental impact.
Event spokesman Philippe Duhamel said Monday that the march was just the beginning. He said there would also be training sessions on how to organize sit-ins and occupy exploration sites.
