Tracy-Anne McPhee is being recommended by an all-party committee to replace outgoing Yukon ombudsman and privacy commissioner Hank Moorlag.

Tracy-Anne McPhee is being recommended by an all-party committee to replace outgoing Yukon ombudsman and privacy commissioner Hank Moorlag.

McPhee is a Whitehorse lawyer and the first female president of the Law Society of Yukon.

She was also the first northerner elected as president of the Federation of Law Societies of Canada.

At least two-thirds of the legislative assembly must support the committee’s choice, so it is expected McPhee’s appointment will be one of the first points of debate during the upcoming spring sitting.

The ombudsman is appointed to a five-year term and can be reappointed.

Moorlag has served two terms since 1996, when he became the first Yukon ombudsman.

His final day in the position is April 7. (TQ)
