The fate of a virtually untouched piece of nature in the Yukon lies in the hands of the territorial government.

A recent plan calls for a large proportion of the Peel watershed to be protected, but the government has yet to accept it or reject it.

As APTN National News reporter Shirley McLean reports, First Nation elders want their voices to be heard.

  1. Our own MAYO, YT Nacho-Nyuk Dun chief – Simon Mervyn has told elders they have no authority or knowledge worth considering. This elected chief has walked out of elders meetings and shown no respect. He has sold out more NND corporations self governed lands to gold mining than any other.  Countless bank accounts exist created under his governance, going to gawd-knows-where and LOTS of money unaccounted.  He is in direct opposition to any concern or objection of activity destroying the Peel Watershed.  His wife is a bully and superbitch that most are afraid of. People in our territory hold evidence and are afraid to come forward. When will it stop?? Soon, I am outing this (EDITED)
