Yellowknives Dene cancel fall hunt

The Yellowknives Dene have cancelled the fall caribou hunt due to conditions that chief Edward Sangris said made it unfeasable.

Due to the distance needed to travel to the caribou and the weather, Sangris said the council chose to cancel the hunt but hoped one is still possible closer to Christmas.

"Members kept phoning our office every day and we kept telling them, 'we have to wait and see if the caribou come down or not' and it was too late," said Sangris.

"That's why we had to cancel the fall hunt, it was too late in the season and the caribou were too far away."

Approving the motion does not mean that a legal action has been filed.

A news release from the Public Service Alliance of Canada and the Yukon Employees Union states the deal comes after a year of negotiations and "tumultuous" job action.
