Behn and Gillis were in the Yukon this past week to discuss the pros and cons of shale gas development, in advance of the final public hearings by the Select Committee conducting a review into the industry. The Yukon has had a moratorium on fracking since 2012, but is now considering reopening the territory to the controversial form of gas extraction.

The pair made presentations in Whitehorse, Dawson City and Watson Lake . The final public hearings take place this coming week, after which the Select Committee is expected to deliver its recommendations to the legislature by the close of this Fall sesssion.
