Slick Water is a true-life noir filled with corruption, incompetence, and, ultimately, courage. It is a deeply informative, disturbing, and important book.

Nova Scotia Tour

Join award-winning journalist and author Andrew Nikiforuk for a presentation - The Legacy of Fracking: From Earthquakes to Jessica Ernst - based on his recent book Slick Water, a stunning examination of fossil fuel industry and government abuse.

Hydraulic fracturing, a highly disruptive technology, has been presented as a novel innovation and economic boom. But scientific evidence tells a different story of water contamination, seismic activity, landscape industrialization and economic ruin. The harrowing experience of Jessica Ernst further illustrates how government and regulators flaunt the law to protect a powerful industry and its dangerous technology.

Slick Water will be available for sale at the events.

Admission is by donation, except Dalhousie which is free admission.
