Candidates will participate in Oct. 28 forum
Only one thing is certain as voters in Cambridge Bay look to the Oct. 30 Nunavut election—afterwards, they’ll have a new MLA.
That’s because Keith Peterson, who became MLA in 2004, and then cabinet minister in 2008, has decided not to seek re-election.
Jeannie Ehaloak, the current mayor, Pamela Gross, the executive director of the Kitikmeot Heritage Society, and Harry Maksagak, the chair of the Cambridge Bay Housing Association, are contesting the seat in Cambridge Bay, where up to about 600 votes are likely to be cast Oct. 30.
They will all participate in a candidates forum on Oct. 28 at the Luke Novoligak Community Hall. The meeting time has yet to be announced.
