The Yukon Government announced late yesterday that they would appeal Justice Veale’s decision in The First Nation of Nacho Nyak Dun et. al. v The Government of Yukon, the lawsuit concerning the Peel Watershed launched by the First Nation of Nacho Nyak Dun, Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in, Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society Yukon Chapter (CPAWS Yukon) and the Yukon Conservation Society (YCS).

Upon hearing this news Chief Ed Champion of the First Nation of Nacho Nyak Dun said, “It’s unfortunate that Yukon Government continues to create uncertainty for industry in Yukon by extending this process even further, but we are ready and willing to continue for as long as it is necessary to protect the integrity of our Final Agreements. We trust that the public and other First Nation governments will continue to stand with us to protect the Peel Watershed.”
