About this Event

Industry and government have presented hydraulic fracturing as an opportunity. Yet the technology has rarely made money for shale companies and disrupted rural communities with extreme water demands and waves of earthquakes. Investigative journalist Andrew Nikiforuk offers a shocking examination of government abuse and the impact of fracking on Alberta's agricultural communities.

For more than three decades Andrew Nikiforuk has written about western politics, energy, and economics for Canada's leading publications, including Maclean’s, Canadian Business, and The Globe and Mail’s Report on Business. 

Nikiforuk’s journalism has won seven National Magazine Awards since 1989 and top honours from the Association of Canadian Journalists. In 2002 he won the Governor General’s Award for Non-Fiction.
