The corporation did not say what happened to an employee who was observed taking down Black Lives Matter posters.

Yukon Energy says it has completed an investigation into reports one of their employees took down Black Lives Matter posters stuck to power poles in Dawson City.

Residents started posting on social media after the Black Lives Matter rally in Dawson on June 6th that an employee was spotted removing the posters.

A complaint was filed and the corporation says an investigation was immediately launched.

A post on social media from Yukon Energy late Tuesday afternoon says the incident is deeply concerning.

The statement says the investigation is one that takes time and is complex.

The corporation says given the personal privacy rights of their employee, they are unable to disclose any details about how they have dealt with this matter.

The statement says rebuilding trust with neighbours, friends, and customers will take time, and continue to consider ways they can learn from what happened and make sure a similar incident does not happen again.
