Open letter to RCMP Chief Inspector Peter Clark:

Please accept my heartfelt thanks for the efforts of the RCMP this past weekend in averting a near disaster that could have resulted in a devastating loss to our community.

If it were not for the fast thinking actions of your officers who were first responders on the scene of the SS Klondike, and contained a fire until City of Whitehorse firefighters arrived moments later, our historic paddle wheeler could have sustained significant damage or worse.

Under your leadership, I am kept informed of incidents and events that have or could potentially impact our citizens. This past weekend was no exception. Inspector Archie Thompson notified me of this incident and the action taken by the RCMP. Please know how much I appreciate and value this communication and the partnership the City of Whitehorse enjoys with the Whitehorse RCMP.

Please extend my sincere appreciation and thanks to the brave men and women in the RCMP who protect our person and our property.

Dan Curtis

Mayor, Whitehorse
