June 8, 2020:
At Yukon Energy, we are committed to treating all of our customers with dignity and respect, and to being good neighbours in the communities we serve.
Over the last few days, we’ve heard concerns from Dawson City residents about the conduct of one of our employees and his actions to take down Black Lives Matter posters placed on our power poles. Reports of any sort of disrespectful behaviour are deeply concerning to us.
We are completing a full investigation into the events that occurred this weekend and will take swift action to ensure that an incident like this doesn’t happen again. We condemn any sort of aggressive behaviour towards our customers.
We reject racism and discrimination of any kind in the strongest terms. We are proud to serve all Yukoners and believe that diversity, inclusion and equality in our business and communities makes us stronger.
We are sorry for the hurt and pain this incident has caused residents in Dawson City. We are committed to making this right and with time, rebuilding trust with our customers, friends and neighbours.
