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!
WHITEHORSE – On Saturday, May 6, over 70 Yukon Party members from across the territory gathered in Whitehorse for the party’s 2023 Annual General Meeting. It was a chance for members to catch up on what has been happening over the past year, and conduct annual party business.
Yukon Party 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 a vision for reliable and affordable energy, addressing the rising cost of basic necessities like groceries, delivering more housing opportunities for Yukoners, and ensuring the government is a partner to the success of business and Yukoners, not an obstacle.
Party members also elected a new executive, with Melanie Brais continuing in her role as party president for a fourth year with the wholehearted support of members. The grassroots membership passed two motions that affirm support for rural Yukon and the private sector. The motions show members support for funding programs around rural roads and resource access roads, as well as to advocate for a fast, reliable internet connection to Whitehorse industrial areas and rural homes.
“I would like to thank all party members for attending our AGM, and conducting important party business,” said Party President Melanie Brais. “As indicated by the turnout, and passing of two motions, all members are behind the important work of our leader and MLAs to listen and bring forward the issues of all Yukoners to the government.”
Members overwhelmingly endorsed Dixon as party leader during the mandatory annual leadership review. The Yukon Party is the only territorial party that requires a leadership review each year.
