Yukon party leaders respond to Student Vote questions

October 31st, 2016 by CIVIX

Next week, elementary and secondary school students across Yukon will participate in the territorial election through the Student Vote program.

Students from 22 schools are learning about the electoral process, exploring the issues, parties and candidates, and will cast ballots for the official candidates in their electoral district.

To help students prepare for their Student Vote Day, CIVIX asked the leaders of Yukon’s political parties to respond to three student questions. More than 65 questions were submitted from Yukon schools and we were pleased to receive video responses from all four parties.

  • Students from École Whitehorse Elementary School in Whitehorse asked: “How will you help Yukon be a better place to live?”

  • Students from Teslin Community School in Teslin asked: “What changes will you make to the education system?”

  • Students from F. H. Collins Secondary School in Whitehorse asked: “What will you do to support independent local businesses and help them grow?”

You can also view the student questions and party leader responses on the Student Vote Yukon website: studentvote.ca/yt2016/the-leaders

This Student Vote project is made possible due to financial support received from Elections Yukon and the Government of Canada.
