WHITEHORSE – A new poll conducted by Leger and commissioned by the Yukon Party has found Yukoners have lost confidence in the territorial Liberal government.
The Liberals are polling at 23 per cent, down from 28 per cent in January. The Yukon Party is currently polling at 45 per cent, with the NDP at 30 per cent.
The poll shows that just 11 per cent of voters are undecided.
“This most recent poll, conducted after Premier Silver announced his retirement, demonstrates that even knowing a change of leadership is coming, Yukoners have lost faith in the Liberals,” said Yukon Party Democratic Institutions Critic Brad Cathers. “Less than one quarter of Yukoners support the territorial Liberal government.”
The poll results come after the territorial Liberals have ignored the cost of living crisis, failed to address the doctor shortage, mismanaged the education system, and fumbled their response to the need for more housing lots.
“Yukoners want a government that is focused on their priorities, including making life more affordable,” added Cathers. “The Yukon Party will continue to focus on the issues that are important to Yukoners, and on solutions that respond to people’s needs and priorities.”
Between September 12 and 21, Leger conducted phone interviews with 500 Yukoners.
