In this episode we’re putting the October 30th Nunavut territorial election in focus.
It’s the fifth general election, since the territory was created in 1999.
22 ridings are represented in the Nunavut Legislative Assembly and right now, 71 candidates are on the last leg of their campaigning, hoping to win one of those seats in this consensus-style government.
One member, is acclaimed. And that is in the riding and community of Kugluktuk, in Western Nunavut.
With many different difficulties affecting Nunavut, we ask what issues are important to them and what they hope the next elected government will achieve.
Guests on the show include APTN’s Kent Driscoll in Iqaluit, Nunatsiaq news editor, Jim Bell, Lindsey Qanguk and Helen Navalik Tologanak.
