Research station gets financial reprieve

Yukon Member of Parliament Ryan Leef says the Kluane Research Station has secured enough bridge funding to remain open for 2012, but it will have to lobby the federal government to secure it's future.

Funding to the research station had initially been cut, but Ottawa relented and provided the facility with $80,000 to remain open for the short term.

Leef says Yukoners will have to campaign to keep the centre open beyond this year.
