Voter Turnout in Yukon Senate election

... 1 vote.

That is, if Premier Fentie gets his way.

Apparently Premier Fentie believes it's "not practical" for Yukoners to vote in a senate election, even though their counter parts in Alberta have just seen it work yet again.

However, he does think one Yukoner should get a say in who should be Yukon's next Senator - and that Yukoner is him.

No doubt if Yukon's MP resigned, it of course would be practical for the federal government to hold a by-election, but not so much for the Territorial government when it's a Senator.

Although, perhaps that's more of a commentary on the usefulness of our Senate than anything.
