Welcome to the new Yukon News website

The online news environment is evolving and we've decided to change with the times. Look around, you'll quickly see we've made significant changes to the site. First, our design is cleaner and much easier to use. And registration is no longer required to access our content. Finding the stories you want to read is easier, with quick access to our various sections: News, Arts, Sports, Business, Letters and Life.

The online news environment is evolving and we’ve decided to change with the times.

Look around, you’ll quickly see we’ve made significant changes to the site.

First, our design is cleaner and much easier to use. And registration is no longer required to access our content.

Finding the stories you want to read is easier, with quick access to our various sections: News, Arts, Sports, Business, Letters and Life.

On the right side of the homepage you will see a list of our columnists and editorials under Opinions.

We’ve added a multimedia section to showcase videos and audio slideshows by Yukon News photographers.  And below that multimedia section you can view the work of our award-winning cartoonist Wyatt Tremblay.

If you’ve got an opinion, we want to hear it. Readers can now post comments at the end of each article, but registration will be required for that privilege. This helps us ensure all contributors are legitimate. Registrations from the old website will not be valid. Through this service, the News hopes to foster thoughtful debates on the issues of the day.

And, finally, we’ve included a few surprises, so prowl around.

A lot of work went into updating this website. We hope our readers enjoy the new look and keep coming back.

If you experience any problems, please contact the web editor, Mike Thomas, at mthomas@yukon-news.com.
