Yukon Government: Ban Hydraulic Fracturing in the Yukon Territory

Currently, the Yukon Territory has not been subject to hydraulic fracturing, although the practice is very prevalent just across our border in North eastern British Columbia.

Recently, the Yukon Government has proposed changes to the Oil and Gas Act that will repeal the Liard First Nations right to veto any further oil and gas development and there is a real threat that the territory could be facing hydraulic fracturing in the very near future.

This petition will pressure the government to put a moratorium on hydraulic fracturing within the Yukon and protect our beautiful, clear watersheds. With all of the threats to water security worldwide, we cannot afford to NOT protect all the clean freshwater we have left.

Thank you for your support,

Yukoners Concerned about Oil and Gas Development
