Edzerza jumps ship

On Monday, John Edzerza left the NDP. The McIntyre/Takhini MLA will be sitting as an independent. His office will still be in the lower level of the territorial government building. But Edzerza's new desk will sit amongst the Yukon research staff offices.

On Monday, John Edzerza left the NDP.

The McIntyre/Takhini MLA will be sitting as an independent.

His office will still be in the lower level of the territorial government building. But Edzerza’s new desk will sit amongst the Yukon research staff offices.

For now, Edzerza still has the same phone number.

NDP communications spokesperson Peter Lesniak “could not comment” on the situation.

The party’s leader, Todd Hardy, is en route to Vancouver for medical reasons and is planning to hold a news conference on Monday, said Lesniak. (Genesee Keevil)
