Legislature will rise from the dead for Halloween

Yukon's legislative assembly will convene for the fall sitting on October 31.  

Yukon’s legislative assembly will convene for the fall sitting on October 31.

“After a long and very busy summer, our government will bring forward a number of key legislative bills during this sitting,” said Premier Darrell Pasloski in a press release. “After two years in office, we have fulfilled a number of the commitments we made to Yukoners, but there are several others on which we will focus going forward, including amendments to the territory’s mining and highways legislation.”

The government has promised to bring forward a motion to publish records of ministerial expenses online.

The sitting will last a maximum of 28 days, so it will end on December 19, or earlier.
