Project would see carlock gas station near Whitehorse Airport
Yukon's environmental assessor is giving its approval for the Kwanlin Dun First Nation to construct a cardlock gas station near the Whitehorse airport on the Alaska Highway.
The proposal would be to build a 100,000 litre above ground fuel storage tank.
The Yukon Environmental and Socio-Economic Assessment Board has determined the project will most likely not have negative environmental and socio-economic impacts.
Area residents were concerned about losing valuable green space, walking trails and the potential for a fuel spill.
