A statement from Yukon Premier Darrell Pasloski

WHITEHORSE—Yukon Premier Darrell Pasloski today issued the following statement on the results of the provincial election in Manitoba:

“On behalf of the Government of Yukon, I would like to congratulate Brian Pallister and the Progressive Conservative Party of Manitoba on winning the provincial election.

“I look forward to working with the premier-designate. As leaders in western Canada, we will have opportunities to meet and work together on many areas of common interest. The West is an important economic driver in our country. Our collaboration and cooperation as premiers can build a stronger economy in the region and build prosperity for all of Canada.

“I will be very pleased to welcome Mr. Pallister to Yukon this summer when Canada’s Premiers gather for their annual summer meeting in Whitehorse.

“I also extend to Greg Selinger all the best in his future endeavours and thank him for his many years of exceptional public service.”
