Statement from Leader Currie Dixon on the Passing of the Rt. Hon Brian Mulroney

“On behalf of the Yukon Party, I offer condolences to the family of the Right Honourable Brian Mulroney after his passing.

“Prime Minister Mulroney was a friend to the Yukon and his government provided many investments we benefit from today, in particular the Erik Nielsen Whitehorse International Airport.

“He also appointed the airport’s namesake, the Honourable Erik Nielsen, to the highest cabinet position held by a Yukoner in Canadian history. Nielsen served as Deputy Prime Minister and de facto House Leader under Mulroney.”

“Mulroney’s tenure as Prime Minister left an indelible mark on our country. He will be remembered by Yukoners and Canadians for generations to come.”
