Natural Gas Industry, And The experience Of Fort Nelson First Nation
There's been a lot of talk recently about hydraulic fracturing - or fracking - and the potential of a natural gas industry developing here in the Yukon. Caleb Behn has first hand knowledge of the industry. He's a member of the Fort Nelson First Nation, who has worked as the oil and gas officer for his First Nation. Behn is now studying law at the University of Victoria....and is touring the territory, telling of his people's experiences. Behn started his Yukon tour on Saturday in Watson Lake.
The CBC's Nancy Thomson was there.
About 30 Watson Lake residents came out to hear Behn speak on Saturday afternoon in Watson Lake. Here's what some of them had to say about potential gas development in the southeast Yukon.
