Mackenzie Valley Pipeline Inquiry
The Mackenzie Valley Pipeline Inquiry was commissioned by the Government of Canada in 1974 to investigate the social, environmental, and economic impact regionally of a proposed oil pipeline that would run through the Yukon and the Mackenzie Valley of the Northwest Territories. This proposed pipeline became known as the Mackenzie Valley Pipeline .
The commissioner of the inquiry was Justice Thomas Berger. Berger's report was released on May 9, 1977. Its principle recommendations were that no pipeline should be built through the northern Yukon, and that any proposed pipeline that would run through the Mackenzie Valley be delayed for ten years.
