Yukon Party Begins Preparation for Next Election at AGM

WHITEHORSE – On Star Wars Day, Saturday, May 4, over 150 Yukon Party members from across the territory gathered in Whitehorse for the party’s 2024 Annual General Meeting. It was a chance for members to catch up on what happened over the past year and conduct annual party business.

There was a focus on preparations for the next election. Party executive heard from members about their concerns over a Liberal government that is tired, not listening to Yukoners, and out of ideas, and about their neglect of rural Yukon.

Leader Currie Dixon delivered his annual update and gave members a wrap-up of the Spring sitting of the Legislative Assembly. He highlighted some key issues the party will push going forward, including rural Yukon, the territory’s crumbling health care and education systems, the lack of housing and lots, and affordability.

Party members also elected a new executive. Melanie Brais will continue in her role as party president for a fifth year.

“I would like to thank all party members for attending our AGM, and building our momentum towards the next election,” said Party President Melanie Brais. “The turnout and discussions show our members are ready to support the important work of our leader and MLAs as we pivot towards providing the change in government that Yukoners want.” 

Members again overwhelmingly endorsed Dixon as party leader during the mandatory annual leadership review. The Yukon Party is the only territorial party requiring a yearly leadership review.
