Hydraulic fracturing in Québec uses only water and sand


An article (in French) by Louis-Gilles Francoeur in Le Devoir informs that hydraulic fracturing operations in Québec are conducted without the toxic dissolvents that are used in the United-States and contaminate groundwater.

The unanswered question is: if the contaminants are actually not used and, as it appears, not required in Québec, why are they needed and used in the U.S.A.?
