Views from Fort McPherson: Public consultations on Peel Watershed


Public consultations happen often in the NWT. Here we see people in Fort McPherson.

Last month they were asked to comment on proposed mining and other development in the Peel Watershed, which is a large area between the NWT and Yukon; one of Canada’s largest pristine freshwater ecosystems.

Here is the article I prepared for CBC.

Now the results of consultations are being posted online, at peelconsultation.ca

For an aboriginal perspective on the Peel River Watershed, you can also see this video prepared by people in the Yukon.
