The article cites a report by the Conference Board of Canada which suggests that airships could serve remote First Nation communities. It says that this is because the winter ice roads which had served as transport for supplies to these communities are becoming more difficult to construct due to the warming trends in the far north. It adds that these airships will be flying under the northern sky to make sure that mines and other resource development projects will be supported and supplied.
