A new study commissioned by the Canadian Arctic Resources Committee shows the very different futures that may await people who live alongside gas resource areas in the Northwest Territories and Yukon. The study maps some very different pictures of the amount of land that will be disturbed as companies look for and develop gas wells. The new maps build on work done by CARC earlier this year.
