This is a good follow-up to the original documentary. It shows, unfortunately, how for many people their land and water situation has worsened, and how widespread fracking has become.

Both this DVD and the Companion part should be watched by all Canadians and especially by everyone who lives in BC, where fracking for natural gas has been sold as a clean alternative to oil and the saviour of the economy for decades to come. Very enlightening.

A continuation & update from the first doc done 5 years earlier ... just as good as the first in pointing out the corruptive influence of the oil&gas industry on governmental environmental regulatory agencies ... and the subsequent contamination of groundwater for human consumption.

It begs the question "Do some of the fracking corporations have a sideline business of getting rid of seriously toxic industrial chemicals by pumping them underground?"

Are government regulators this stupid?

This is a DO-NOT-MISS for British Columbians and Canadians in general at a time when this globally much-contested practice is being expanded by those too greedy to care about consequences here in the province. If you've missed the original- CATCH UP! The people who wait until it is past the tipping-point will scream the LOUDEST, no doubt - after all, they have so many EXPECTATIONS...
