In Rexton, New Brunswick, an ongoing blockade of a planned hydrofracking operation was attacked by police on October 17. Clashes erupted with police cars set ablaze and fracking equipment destroyed. In total, police made 40 arrests. With fracking becoming the go-to energy extraction method across all parts of northeastern North America, blockades and encampments such as this are emerging as one of the most effective ways to halt it.
