A Battle is Brewing.....

A wise person once said, "The only constant is change."  And that may be what decides the latest battle between Yukon First Nations and the Yukon Government.  The territory has introduced amendments to the Yukon Oil and Gas Act.  The main goal is to remove veto powers from First Nations that do not have land claim agreements.  The Kaska are objecting saying they have a signed agreement that their rights will be respected up until they sign a land claim deal.  The arguments could end up in court.
