Listening to Communities and Reinstating Premier’s Community Tour Public Meetings
WHITEHORSE – Brad Cathers, MLA for Lake Laberge, announced his plan to reinstate the annual Premier’s Community Tour, including holding public meetings in all Yukon communities every year.
“My vision for improving how government listens to Yukoners includes the Premier and other elected officials holding public meetings in Yukon communities at least once a year,” said Cathers. “This is an important part of showing Yukoners that a government under my leadership cares about them and their priorities, and that I am willing to answer questions about the issues that are important to them.”
Brad’s vision for reinstating the annual Premier’s Community Tour includes holding public meetings in all Yukon communities every year, as well as meeting with First Nations, municipalities, and local advisory councils.
During the Leadership Election Campaign, he plans to visit all Yukon communities, and will be announcing dates in the New Year.
“When I was first elected, I made a commitment to hold public meetings for my constituents every year,” noted Cathers. “During my time as an MLA, I have kept that commitment, and have always held public meetings for my constituents. I believe that sitting down with Yukon citizens is valuable, and helps ensure that leaders keep in touch with the people they are elected to serve.”
Brad also committed to continuing to support the Yukon Forum, as well as maintaining respectful government-to-government working relationships with First Nations and municipalities, and respectful working relationships with local advisory councils.
