October 25, 2011


Setting the tone for co-operation

WHITEHORSE—A joint briefing on Government of Yukon programs and services will be offered to all 19 recently elected members of the Yukon Legislative Assembly.

“In the spirit of co-operation and to signal a new way of working together, I have requested that deputy ministers provide a briefing to the members of all three Caucuses,” Premier Darrell Pasloski said.

Next week, 14 Yukon government departments and three corporations will provide an overview of their programs, services and regulatory responsibilities to MLAs.

“I believe that all members will benefit from gaining a better understanding of the way government works,” Pasloski said.

This initiative is the result of a discussion between the Premier and the Leader of the Official Opposition.
