I don’t see the reason for the government cutting down all the trees in surrounding areas. Example would be down at the waterfront, where they have put up a dock. Leave the cutting for the beavers; after all, it’s just nature.

Are they expecting a second coming of the Mayflower?

Again, we have more than enough people here as it is. I see different faces and rotten attitudes from Outsiders here everyday. Why are they coming here? Is it because of Dennis Fentie’s government in the past advertising for people to come here for the economy?

Well, the economy doesn’t work with the environment. Again, people will just bring their garbage here and move on to pollute the next place.

It might sound unhealthy, but if you don’t respect our land, water, air and people who are from here you don’t belong here. Learn some manners and respect, no matter what it might be. And learn some courtesy when you’re driving. People who drive don’t know how to drive worth a damn. I don’t know where the hell they got their licence from. These people are just as dangerous (if not more) as drunk drivers.

Yukon is not the same, thanks to our idiot brainstorming government and greedy contractors building up more apartments and condos for this second coming of the Mayflower.

The First Nation governments and the white government must find a solution to stop all this traffic coming up here.

To hell with the economy. All the animals will be shut off or killed. There are just too many sport hunters, and hunters alike.

We all see the crime rates escalating as we have more people coming up here.

I would like to see the Yukon more of a frontier, as it was, than all this garbage that is brought here. You were able to walk down the street and people used to greet you or say hello to one another; now we have a bunch of snob-nosed people bringing all their prejudice and discrimination here. These people are not welcome here in my books.

People don’t know anyone anymore because of all this BS.

Even the street people have more respect and manners than these people. They appreciate everything that we take for granted, and are warm people to talk to. So, if you need to get integrated, I suggest you talk to these people and learn some respect, appreciation and manners. In other words, quit telling all your friends, and their friends telling their friends and families to come here.

It’s just like killing one mosquito and all the rest coming to his funeral.
