WHITEHORSE – Today, in recognition of St. Patrick’s Day, the Official Opposition released the following statement:
Today represents a global celebration of Irish culture, a day to remember the patron Saint Patrick, and for some a day to indulge.
However, as the new government prepares its first budget they may find themselves tempted to indulge a little too much.
So, in the spirit of this holiday, as the government works to finalize their budget which is expected to see Yukon go into deficit and take on debt we would like to pass on some advice by way of an Irish proverb:
If you buy what you don’t need, you might have to sell what you do.
From the entire Yukon Party, we wish a safe and happy St. Patrick’s Day to all Yukoners!
