"There's been so much work going on at the Yukon NDP and you can feel it," siad Dave Weir, Candidate for Nomination in Kluane. "Not just in preparing for the upcoming election but in helping Yukoners whenever we can and fighting for people who need it most." Wier says, "Kate has gathered a great team of community builders and Yukoners will recognize themselves in this group."
"You can feel the energy in this group," says Michelle Friesen a Whitehorse Candidate for Nomination. "It's awesome to be a part of this team, to see these new faces who can bring real community knowledge and experience to politics and break with the status quo."
"Our team is growing everyday because people want to do politics differently," said Yukon NDP Leader Kate White. "We are going to offer Yukoners a bold vision to make life better for people across the territory. I'm so proud of our team. We are not going to just pay lip service to the things we believe in. COVID has shown that we can't go back to the "old normal" that left so many people struggling. We need a recovery that puts people and the environment first."
