Encyclopedia > Premier of Yukon

The Premier of Yukon (alternately, the Premier of the Yukon) is the first minister for the Canadian territory of Yukon. They are the territory's head of government and de facto chief executive, although their powers are considerably smaller than that of a provincial premier.

From 1978 to 1985 and from 1992 to 1996, the term Government Leader was used instead.

The current Premier of Yukon is Dennis Fentie.

Yukon Premier Dennis Fentie and NWT Premier Steven Kakfwi have jointly called for Ottawa to reconsider their gun registry until the effectiveness of the program can be audited and a true sense of the program's effectiveness can be determined.
Fentie re-affirmed that the Yukon government would not contribute to the enforcement of the new federal gun legislation.
The Premiers identified the need to effectively deal with the criminal use of firearms and to ensure the safety of Canadians, but not by creating legislation that does not deliver positive results at a cost to taxpayers that is not realistic.
