Phone, we’ll talk

This is an open response to Neil Johnson’s letter in Wednesday’s News:

You have chosen to air your political opinions in the media, so I will respond in kind.

It’s interesting to note you have written several letters to the editor, including two during the recent election campaign.

I further note you have made no secret of your support for the Yukon Party or dislike for the other parties and the people in them.

Your relationship with the Yukon Party appears to be mutual given your appointment by the Yukon Party to a five-year term on the Teslin Renewable Resources Council in 2003.

Your letters commonly feature sharp political attacks based on newly emerged situations.

This level of readiness is quite remarkable for someone who is relatively unknown on the Yukon political scene and so removed from our legislature.

It is unfortunate that too often your conclusions hang on faulty information that is only consistent with the rhetoric we hear from the likes of Yukon Party spindoctors.

If you should ever have the time, I would be very interested to meet you to discuss some of the issues you have raised.

I can be reached at 1-800-661-0408, ext. 8941.

Gary McRobb, MLA Kluane,
