Yukon NDP to call motion on future of continuing care

The Yukon NDP Official Opposition will use their opposition motion debate time tomorrow to call Motion 1080, which calls on the government to better engage Yukoners in light of its failure to consult Yukoners across the territory about its controversial 300-bed Whistle Bend continuing care facility.

The motion, tabled by Yukon NDP Health Critic Jan Stick, follows feedback from a packed Yukon NDP continuing care town hall where nearly 100 Yukoners overwhelmingly spoke in opposition to the government’s continuing care plan.

In a survey conducted by the Yukon NDP Official Opposition, only 13% of Yukoners believe that the Yukon Party government is on the right track on continuing care and 91% oppose or have serious concerns about the government’s Whistle Bend complex.

WHAT: Yukon NDP Official Opposition continuing care motion debate
WHEN: Wednesday, 25 November at approximately 3 pm (depending on other legislative business)
WHERE: Yukon Legislative Assembly (2071 2nd Ave.)

The Yukon legislature's public gallery is open to anyone who would like to watch the debate. The full text of Stick's motion is available here: www.yukonndpcaucus.ca/full_text_motion_1080
