“We know that COVID is not over just yet. We are seeing cases increase and restrictions tighten across Canada. We have come to far to jeopardize these efforts by irresponsibly lifting restrictions prematurely. We are all excited to be finished with this pandemic and a re-elected Liberal government will follow the Chief Medical Officer of Health’s recommendations to lift these restrictions as quickly as it is safe to do so.”
Sandy Silver, Yukon Liberal Party Leader and candidate for the Klondike
“Strong government-to-government relationships allowed us to coordinate closely with our First Nations and municipal partners to manage the pandemic and follow the recommendations of Yukon’s Chief Medical Officer of Health. We are leading the country with our vaccine rollout and are getting closer to being able to lift restrictions. Let’s keep going.”

The Liberal government made a commitment to do better, and to work in collaboration with First Nation governments. We delivered on this commitment and believe it needs to continue, because there are so many opportunities on the horizon.Read more
