In 1979, Yukon Francophones got together in the hopes of watching Hockey Night in Canada in French.
November 20, 1980
We Francophones and other interested parties in Whitehorse, Yukon, are pleased to present you with a request that is very dear to us: we would like to have French radio and television programs. […]
We are given to understand, however, that such a project cannot proceed immediately. We ask that Radio-Canada look into our request in the not-too-distant future. In the meantime, please allow the WHTV company in Whitehorse to broadcast French programming on existing cable or satellite channels. […]
Thank you for your kind consideration,
Francophones from the Yukon, the truly “pays d’en haut”
