I was wondering why the Pasloski government is opposed to reforming the Election donation regime in the Yukon. One only had to go to the Elections Yukon website to see how the so-called “Yukon” Party is financed by Outside corporations and banks.
Between 2011 and now the Yukon Party and the Liberals collected a total of $441,695 from corporations, banks and unions. The Yukon Party enjoyed the biggest share of those donations (70 per cent).
Interesting to note that one corporation, Strata Gold, donated $15,000 to the “Yukon” Party.
I really hope that we get rid of this blatant abuse of Yukoners by mining companies and the rich donors who do not vote in the Yukon and have no interest in the outcome of any Yukon election, except to see their friends get elected. Think about it on election day.
