The former Premier of the Yukon, Yukon Party Leader Darrell Pasloski, was a carbon tax fighter. He knew that putting a price on carbon would raise the cost of everything in his territory, including food, clothing, and gas.
Unfortunately for working people in the Yukon, Pasloski is no longer premier, having been replaced by Liberal Leader and new premier Sandy Silver.
Silver is not fighting for the taxpayer or territorial jurisdiction repeatedly stating that a carbon tax is inevitable. Instead, he has mused about finding ways to return the money generated from the carbon tax by the Yukon government to corporations. So in the Yukon, under a Sandy Silver premiership, individual working people will pay for a carbon tax and selected corporations will benefit!
The Yukon Party is currently in the midst of finalizing details for their leadership election to replace Darrell Pasloski. It is imperative that the Yukon Party elect a leader who is willing to defend the Yukon's territorial jurisdiction, stand up to Justin Trudeau's carbon tax demands, and fight to Axe the Carbon Tax!
