TESLIN – The housing situation in Ross River has reached emergency proportions per a letter from the Ross River Dena Council Chief Jack Caesar. Carl Sidney, Yukon Liberals candidate in Pelly-Nisutlin, is deeply concerned about this situation.
“This situation didn’t happen overnight – housing in Ross River has been an issue for decades and has been allowed to deteriorate to this crisis point due to lacking of funding and an unwillingness by the Yukon government to make this a priority,” said Sidney. “People should not be living in sub-standard homes that are literally dangerous to their health.”Read more
