A moderate sized 4.4M earthquake struck at a pumping / drilling / injection well operation in British Columbia, Canada.

We have been seeing a lot of movement at the fracking / injection well operations, and dormant volcanoes along the Southern / Western edge of the craton over the past few weeks, if not months.

(below is a screenshot from last weeks movement in the USA up to may 20 2013)

All this movement along the craton edge (including the northeast USA in Canada) , was followed by the large scale movement in Northern California near Lassen Volcanic Complex.

Also, two censored / deleted 4.0M+ earthquakes struck Utah, and South California just after the California swarm began with a 5.7M event..

Then, within hours of the California swarm, in the WEST Pacific, we had the 8.3M earthquake at the Kuril Islands / Kamchatka Russia Volcanic island chain…

This brings us to today — now we’re seeing movement along the NW edge of the North American Craton — larger movement at the weak points, just like in the lower 48 states.  The weak points consist of dormant volcanic areas (weak crust / shallow magma chambers), drilling operations, and even a few deep mines.
