It is imperative that First Nation citizens and all Yukoners exercise their right to vote. We believe that making an informed decision is vital to this process. The territorial election is very important to our communities. We want to ensure that our citizens are well informed, engaged and exercise their right to vote. The responses offer important information for all voters in regards to each Party’s position on issues that matter to Yukon First Nations.
