Sandy Silver: You had one job

  • Liberal leader misses final day of the 33rd Yukon Legislative Assembly
  • Silver left Thursday to attend the all weekend Liberal Party of Canada convention

 

WHITEHORSE—Premier Darrell Pasloski challenged Liberal Leader Sandy Silver’s priorities after Silver was absent on the final day of the 33rd Yukon Legislative Assembly.

“The first rule of leadership is to show up,” Premier Pasloski said. “All members are absent from the assembly for business from time to time, but ultimately we have one job – to vote on Yukoners’ business.”

By missing the final day of the sitting before an election this year, Silver will miss voting on the $1.392 billion of expenditures in the 2016/2017 Budget and amendments to the Quartz Mining Act and the Placer Mining Act.
