First Nations want oil and gas sites cleaned up

First Nations in British Columbia say a study detailing environmental problems from oil and gas development requires action from the provincial government.

The study shows that moose, deer and other wildlife have been contaminated with chemicals and metals. First Nations people depend on the animals for subsistence.

First Nations leaders say the government needs to fund studies to determine the impact of the contamination on people.
