Inch by inch, the large corporations will destroy our natural resources in the North, all for profit.

The issue of whether or not to switch to liquefied natural gas instead of diesel should not be an issue. We should never consider introducing LNG as a source of alternative energy. Let’s spend time and money introducing an alternative source of power which doesn’t come from dubious sources, like fracking.

There are better choices. Perhaps people could slow down on introducing a potential of a disastrous accident, which could spoil our land and water.

All of the money you will make will not buy back what the Peel watershed and the Yukon Territory offers the environment. Clean water, healthy animal populations, fish and water fowl mean more than minerals and oil.

Global warming is past talking about. We need to do something towards reversing our energy consumption and put political will towards keeping our vast wilderness and air and water safe.

Democracy means the government must work with the people, not ignore the people and make huge decisions without their consent. We need to leave the planet a good place for our future children across the world as we are all connected.

Protecting the Peel for a starter and banning fracking from the Yukon will help.
