We need the Canadian auditor general to look at Yukon’s financial situation.
Last week, I challenged Premier Darrell Pasloski to come clean on the Yukon’s financial picture.
I would hope that, in the next two weeks, he will release all the required documents indicating what the total financial picture is for all YTG operations and all Crown corporations.
What Yukoners want to see is a clear ledger that shows the cost of government operations, including all committed and promised election capital projects.
The ledger should indicate the revenues coming in from the federal government, taxes generated in the Yukon and all other revenues that come to the Yukon government.
The ledger should indicate all loans that both YTG and Crown corporations have taken out on behalf of Yukoners.
If Pasloski is not able to come forth with a clear Yukon financial picture, I would propose that the federal auditor general be called in to assess Yukon’s financial status and issue a summary report before the October 11 Yukon election.
Yukoners need to know, now, what the Yukon Party has done in the last nine years with our money.
What Yukoners need to know is: Where are we now, financially? Where are we going? How are we going to get there?
No matter who forms the next government, this information will be needed to govern their actions for the next five years.
