Nova Scotia's independent fracking panel, headed by Dr. David Wheeler of Cape Breton University, tours the province to discuss the findings of their review.

Nova Scotia's provincial government has stated the findings of this review will be considered in their decision to renew or remove the provincial moratorium on hydraulic fracturing.
