Open letter to the Yukon Energy board:
Wyatt’s cartoon in the April 4 Yukon News illustrated a crucial part of the proposed liquefied natural gas conversion project that your board has not been mindful of.
You need to start recognizing that the public are not only customers of Yukon Energy, but also the utility’s owners. Without the support of the shareholder, you have no project.
I urge you to read the final day of transcript from the Yukon Utility Board hearing on April 2, found on the board’s website. There you will find, within the arguments presented, the reasons for the public opposition which were so eloquently and passionately voiced at the utility board’s community session on March 31. That public session is also transcribed on the board’s website. Both transcripts should be required reading for all Yukon people.
Yukon Energy’s board needs to arrange for a general meeting with its shareholders, the Yukon people, as soon as possible.
