Yukon NDP Statement on the Passing of Queen Elizabeth II

Whitehorse, September 8th – Yukon NDP Leader Kate White issued the following statement in response to the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

“Canada and the Yukon have a long, shared history with Queen Elizabeth II. Many Yukoners will grieve her passing, and others will have conflicted feelings about the relationship between indigenous people in Yukon and the Monarchy she represented for so long. No matter how people remember her, her seven decades of public service is unmatched in modern times and a remarkable feat.”

In addition to an accomplished and long reigning Monarch, she was also a dedicated a mother, grandmother and great grandmother. My caucus and I send our thoughts and prayers to her family today.”
