Protect Canada Bay from Coal Seam Gas (CSG) Exploration

Pauline Tyrrell at “No CSG Rally’ on 1 May 2012

Pauline Tyrrell was one of 4,000 people who rallied outside State Parliament recently to stop CSG mining under both the Sydney metropolitan area and in prime agricultural land all over NSW. There is growing concern that CSG mining interferes with underground water systems. And the heavy vehicle movements associated with this activity could cause havoc in areas such as the Inner West. Many may not realise that there is a current CSG exploration licence which covers all the land under the Canada Bay Council area.

After the  rally, Pauline moved a motion for Canada Bay Council to oppose CSG mining and exploration until it can be proved to be sustainable and to call on the Premier to ban CSG mining and exploration in the Sydney basin.

The story was published in the Inner West Courier (23/5/12)
