WHITEHORSE – Ted Laking will become Chief of Staff of the Official Opposition and Yukon Party Caucus.
“We’re excited to have Ted join our team,” said Stacey Hassard, Yukon Party Interim Leader. “His experience and strong roots in the community will be a valuable addition to the Yukon Party as we hold the government to account.
Most recently Laking served as a senior advisor to the Yukon Party Government. Prior to that he spent nearly six years in Ottawa in senior roles for the previous federal government, including as Director of Communications and Acting-Chief of Staff to Canada’s Environment Minister.
“It is an honour to join this team as we look to hold the government to account and ensure they manage taxpayers’ money responsibly and keep life affordable for Yukon families,” said Laking.
Last week Ted was inducted into the Royal Canadian Geographical Society’s prestigious College of Fellows which is focused on making Canada better known to Canadians and to the world.
