A strong recovery requires leadership, bold ideas, and action — and we need your help! Add your name if you'll stand with Currie Dixon and the Yukon Party!
HAINES JUNCTION – Yukon Party members gathered on Saturday at the St. Elias Convention Centre in Haines Junction for the party’s 2022 Annual General Meeting.
Members heard from leader Currie Dixon who outlined how the party was holding the Liberal government to account. Dixon highlighted how the current government has been out of touch with Yukoners in regards to inflation and the overall cost of living. Dixon also talked about how the Liberals have continued to strain the relationship with the NDP, and stressed to party members the need to be ready for an election.
Party members also passed a resolution put forward by the Kluane Electoral District Association regarding responsible resource development. The resolution calls for the party to support improving certainty for the private sector by reviewing assessment and permitting processes such as the Waters Act, and the Yukon Environment and Socio-Economic Assessment Act.
The meeting also saw the re-election of President Mel Brais, and members elected a new executive for the upcoming year.
As required at every Annual General Meeting, the Yukon Party conducted a leadership review. Yukon Party membership voted in support of leader Currie Dixon and declined to trigger a leadership election.
