Frosty reception to proposed rent freeze shows Yukon politicians' priorities are with upper class

Earlier this month, a motion to put a moratorium on rent increases in Yukon until July 1, 2021 was voted down, unanimously rejected by both the Liberal government and the Official Opposition. 

The proposed freeze, which was tabled by Kate White of the NDP and was touted as a form of protection for renters facing potential financial hardship during the COVID-19 pandemic, would have been in keeping with those in British Columbia and Ontario.
