OK, this is a situation here in the Yukon, and perhaps not the most appropriate section on the forum, but I need some non-biased input.
North of Whitehorse are two small communities, Faro and Mayo. There are 3 Federally licensed air carriers that have apparently signed "contracts" with all the big game outfitters who base out of these communities, and part of these contracts are that the carriers can not fly for anyone else while on contract, which means no residents flying into "their" areas. The outfitters have essentially formed a cartel, and have pretty much now eliminated residents. The carriers would love to fly residents, but the Yukon is small in population, and outfitters bring a lot of business. The outfitters have stated to them in clear terms that if they fly residents into any of "their" lakes (that is any lakes in their concessions) they will not get any business from any of them.
What would you guys do? Would Alaskans be ok with this situation.
