Abstract

This paper presents an exploratory study that investigates the latent motives in the public reasoning and rhetoric of hydraulic fracturing expansion offered by the current government of British Columbia. A pentadic analysis was conducted on a policy strategy report titled British Columbia’s Natural Gas Strategy. The results of the analysis demonstrate how rhetorical devices are applied for legitimizing the exploitation of the natural gas resources in BC.
