Federal precedent favours Yukon Liberals, but campaign will decide the result

Yukoners will go to the polls to elect their territorial government on Nov. 7, barely a year after they cast their ballots in last year's federal election. So can the results of that 2015 vote provide any indication of what to expect at the end of this campaign?

  1. I enjoyed this article on the Yukon. We rarely think of them as influencing politics but, Yukoners are on the front lines and taken the lead in many cases on a whole host of issues from Indigenous rights and self-government to climate change, resource development. I look forward to more coverage of the general election.
