Premier Darrell Pasloski is proposing four leaders’ debates ahead of this year’s territorial election.
Pasloski, who hasn’t announced an election date yet, said in a statement Thursday that there should be one debate that covers topics proposed by the Association of Yukon Communities, the various chambers of commerce and mines and the Tourism Industry Association of the Yukon.
The premier also wants one leaders’ debate in the traditional CBC format and two others “with content and format agreed to by all four parties.”
At least two of these debates should take place in a community outside Whitehorse, the statement says.
No dates are being proposed for the debates. The writ has to be dropped by Oct. 14.
