REA members were participating in a Fridays for Future rally in front of Antigonish Town Hall when the news broke! After 7 years of sustained opposition led by Mi’kmaw Water Protectors, here is the official Alton Gas statement:  Alton Natural Gas Storage Project Update

Who are we?

Welcome to the home base of Responsible Energy Action (REA), an education and action group located in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. We focus on how we obtain and use energy.

Our regular meetings are usually held the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month.  However, due to COVID-19 measures, face-to-face meetings have been cancelled.  In the meanwhile, you can stay in touch via our facebook page and listserv. To join our listserv, just send a message requesting that to reaantigonish@gmail.com.

From the time the group formed in late 2011 through late 2014, we worked hard to educate ourselves and our community on the environmental, health, economic and social aspects of unconventional petroleum extraction.

In keeping with our goals,  we have also studied and supported energy efficiency, sustainable alternatives, and energy-related climate change initiatives. As we navigate these issues, we retain a focus on equitable access to energy and employment opportunities in the renewable energy sector.  We would like to see our community at the forefront of both mitigating and adapting to climate change.   

We collaborate with local governments, the Mi’kmaq Nation, and with other organizations on all these issues. 

You can contact us at reaantigonish@gmail.com

(Please be patient Φ We may not answer right away, but we will get back to you!)
