Political career[edit]

Prior to his election to the Yukon legislature, Streicker served on Whitehorse City Council from 2012 to 2015.[5] He was formerly president of the Green Party of Canada,[6] for whom he was a candidate in the federal electoral district of Yukon in the 2008 federal election and the 2011 election.

He was elected to the Yukon Legislative Assembly as the Liberal candidate for the rural riding of Mount Lorne-Southern Lakes on November 7, 2016, as part of a majority government of Sandy Silver. It was the first time the Liberals had won that riding. He defeated incumbent New Democrat Kevin Barr, who had also run in the 2011 federal election, by just 14 votes.

On December 3, 2016, Streicker was sworn into Yukon's Cabinet as Minister of Community Services, Minister responsible for the French Language Services Directorate, Minister responsible for the Yukon Liquor Corporation, and Minister responsible for the Yukon Lottery Corporation.[7]
