YELLOWKNIFE — Another premier may be going to Ottawa with boxing gloves on.

Floyd Roland, 46, the newly chosen leader of the Northwest Territories, says it’s time the federal government took seriously the North’s desire to control and benefit from its own resources.

“I believe we do need to take a stronger approach as we see development happening in the Northwest Territories,” he said yesterday after being chosen. “And I really believe that northerners need to benefit from the development of the resources here in the North.”
