This year we highlight the Fort Nelson – Liard River basin where the use of record-breaking mass scale and highly controversial hydraulic fracturing (fracking) to extract deep earth natural gas resources is causing growing alarm among local people and those who live downstream in the Arctic Ocean Basin.

“If there was someway we could take care of our land. To us that doesn’t mean big studies and big water plants. It doesn’t mean more industry coming in and fixing it for us. It means finding that balance so the land can stay healthy, so we as human beings can live on this land.”
