You may have heard about Petrolia having troubles drilling their well in the Gaspe due to special new rules made by the municipality. It shouldn't be a surprise that a municipality decided to make its own rules. The Government of Quebec won't tell anyone how it works or what the benefits are. It's like a national secret kept securely in the vaults of the BAPE.
I went to Toronto, New York, London and especially Oslo to explain the resource potential of Quebec. I told all who would listen how Quebec had worked for over a generation to become energy independent. I told them Questerre had an idea for natural gas that could help Quebec achieve its energy independence dreams. I was successful and convinced them to take the high risks involved and we were successful in finding one of the largest natural gas fields in North America.
