Territorial election forum - candidates answers
19 September 2019
Congratulations to all candidates who have put forth their names in the territorial election. Together with the NWT & NU Chamber of Mines the NWT Chamber of Commerce has contacted every candidate and posed our 3 questions with a request to provide written submissions by Monday, September 16th in addition to the 3 forums that have/will be hosted by the NWT Chamber of Commerce and NWT & NU Chamber of Mines; the Hay River Chamber of Commerce Sept/19th and the Norman Wells and District Chamber date TBD.
The NWT is about to enter into two very pivotal elections in October and we want to make sure that we are putting the most pressing business-related issues to all Territorial candidates. Both the NWT Chamber of Commerce and NWT & NU Chamber of Mines sent out a survey to our collective memberships of 500+ businesses and/or individuals asking them: “The NWT is about to enter into two pivotal elections in October and we want to make sure that we are putting the most pressing business related issues to all Territorial and Federal candidates. Below please rank in order of importance to you and/or your business…” The top 5 issues were Red Tape/Barriers to Entry; Cost of Living; Over Regulation; Mineral Industry and Housing.
