Could northeastern British Columbia's gas development be hazardous to local people's health? The BC government has launched a health study to find out. Now, a new peer-reviewed study says the energy industry may be linked to cases of cancer, asthma and respiratory diseases in the Peace. Daybreak spoke with the study's author, environmental scientist Judi Krzyzanowski. She'sbeen studying the issue for years. Her work has been published in the National Research Council's Environmental Review. Here's the research abstract: http://www.nrcresearchpress.com/doi/abs/10.1139/a2012-005

To celebrate, we are once again sharing the entire "Cornering Gas" series here, which you can stream online or download for later listening. "Cornering Gas" is an in-depth look at the shale gas industry and how it's affecting northeastern B.C. and beyond. Daybreak North co-host Robert Doane and CBC news reporter Betsy Trumpener hit the road to meet the people and places at the centre of the controversial industry. You'll hear from them, along with Daybreak host Carolina De Ryk in this award-winning series first broadcast in September 2011.You can find individual segments from this series, along with more photos at http://bit.ly/corneringgasonline.

Cornering Gas continues with the light and the heavy.
Daybreak strolls the aisle at a tiny Fort Nelson store that gives "one stop shopping" a whole new meaning.
Fracking is a thirsty business. Fracking just one shale gas well can use as much 600 Olympic-size swimming pools of water. That's a big problem for drought-prone Dawson Creek. So the northern city is freeing up "frack water" by putting its sewage up for sale.
Christy Clark may have thrown her backing behind shale gas fracking... But not everyone is sold on the rapid development.
