It seems that the proponents of drilling are a few steps ahead of the rest of us - and also the Provincial Government. One has to wonder if the "conventional drilling" plan might be just a ruse or a blinder introduced in an effort to keep opponents of the project quiet; then the fracking will not appear to be such a threat when the proverbial ice has been broken. One thing is certain: there seem to be very few of the local people who are happy with the process in areas where fracking has already been applied. But the truth of it is, once it has begun in your area - any form of drilling for minerals of any kind - it is virtually impossible to stop it. If the government departments authorise it, without close consultation with local inhabitants, we are, as they say, screwed.
