He’s been out of office since losing the Nov. 7 territorial election, but former premier Darrell Pasloski was still signing cheques until after the New Year.
Or at least the Yukon government’s automatic cheque signing machine was still using the former Finance minister’s signature.
Eric Clement, a Department of Finance spokesman, explained this morning the legislation provides a grace period of three months from the swearing-in of a new Finance minister to make the switch.
Premier Sandy Silver, also the new Finance minister, was sworn in Dec. 3.
Clement said Silver has signed the card required for the automatic signing machine and the new signature began showing up this week.
“So they are still ahead of the ball in terms of the grace period,” he said.
