Richard Mostyn wrote an excellent editorial for today’s Yukon News (Careless Grants Can Cause Problems).
Mostyn hits the nail on the head when he writes, “But turning a critical eye to funding proposals is the government’s responsibility. Look what happens when cowboy capitalism takes over.”
He’s exactly right. This entire mess would have been avoided had even a moderate degree of discretion been exercised at the Yukon Government when Little Paws sought funding.
