Yukon Senator Dan Lang seemingly has changed his mind about limiting the time a senator can sit in government. I suspect the Yukon’s Conservative government (spelled Yukon Party) pushed for his political appointment, acknowledged by then sitting Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

The Yukon government could have called an election over who should represent the people of the Yukon in the Senate. But the government of the day did not trust the people to choose their senator. Also, I have a letter from the present Yukon government that states holding an election for the senator of the Yukon is not on their agenda.

So here is a challenge to the sitting senator. You could stay on as a senator, or you could set an example of honesty and fairness to the people, by stepping down and encouraging the Yukon government to call an election for our Senate seat. Then put your name forward.
