In the article, Peeling Back the Layers (News, Sept. 16), Darrell Pasloski continued to refuse to state what the Yukon Party thinks about the Peel.

As a premier, one is the representative of all of the Yukon regardless of their affiliations. As leader of a political party, one is the representative of their party.

Pasloski is intentionally blurring the lines between his job as the premier-designate and his job as the leader of a political party.

The point of an election is, after all, letting the people of Yukon choose, with their ballot, what they want their government to act like, interact like and collaborate like.

Darrell Pasloksi, leader of the Yukon Party and candidate for Mountainview, must state what his political party believes.

Do you not have any policies that speak directly to the environment?

Has your party not sat together in a room during conventions to discuss your values and principles, in order to decide what you collectively think about the Peel?

Yukon Party and Yukon government are not synonymous. And, thankfully, due to their lack of transparency surrounding the Peel, housing shortages, our fiscal situation and our education system, the Yukon Party will not be forming the next government of the Yukon.

To be premier of the Yukon government is to be the spokesperson for the Yukon, to be the person advocating for all Yukoners and leading the Yukon.

And I would never vote for a candidate who will not clearly state whether or not they would protect the Peel.

Be honest with us, because we are being honest with you when we say we want a government that will protect the Peel.
