Quebec couple fleeing COVID-19 'endangered' Yukon First Nation, chief says


"They dreamt about it, pointed at a map, jumped in their car, and now they're in the Yukon," said Chief Dana Tizya-Tramm of the Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation in Old Crow, Yukon. According to Tizya-Tramm, the couple drove from Quebec to Whitehorse, then hopped a plane to Old Crow, Yukon's northernmost community and accessible only by air. The couple ended up at the Old Crow Retail Co-op. Kelli Howie, general manager at Old Crow Retail Co-op, said that the two guests arrived Friday without a prior reservation. Yukon RCMP said they were tipped off on Saturday by a local emergency management officer (EMO) in Old Crow, about the couple's arrival.
