Online forum hosted by N.W.T. Association of Communities featured only 2 of 10 invited candidates
The N.W.T. Association of Communities (NWTAC) hosted a series of online election forums for its board members on Wednesday — but the forum for ridings north of Great Slave Lake drew only two of the 10 invited candidates.
The two candidates were Denny Rodgers, running in Inuvik Boot Lake (against Diane Archie and Sallie Ross), and Lesa Semmler, the incumbent candidate in Inuvik Twin Lakes (running against Lenora McLeod).
There were two themes to the forum: community government funding, and climate change.
Both candidates said they would advocate for more money to help communities.
