MLAs will discuss capital budget, Education Act and more
After a summer break, Nunavut’s legislative assembly will reconvene for its fall sitting tomorrow, with a long list of items on its agenda.
The fall sitting runs from Oct. 17 to Nov. 7.
The session will start with the swearing-in of David Qajaakuttuk Qamaniq, the newly elected MLA from Pond Inlet, at 9 a.m. in the legislature on Thursday, Oct. 17.
Qamaniq won a tight race in the Sept. 16 byelection in the constituency of Tununiq. The byelection was called to fill the vacancy created last March by the death of the riding’s former MLA, Joe Enook, who was serving as Speaker at the time of his passing.
