NWT to receive eight institutions’ help in creating polytechnic

November 26, 2019

Cabin Radio - The Northwest Territories has named eight Canadian institutions from which it will receive advice during the process of transforming Aurora College into a polytechnic university. The eight other universities and colleges will sit on an "academic advisory council" designed to help guide the process of creating the NWT's polytechnic. In 2018, then-education minister Caroline Cochrane – now the premier – said she envisaged creating a "destination polytechnic university" capable of drawing students from elsewhere in Canada, not just an institution designed to serve the local population. Creating of the advisory council has been anticipated for some time. It forms a key building-block in the broader plan to create the polytechnic university.

Yukon premier says CBC abandoning mandate over newscasts

November 19, 2019

Cabin Radio - Yukon Premier Sandy Silver on Tuesday urged his territorial colleagues to unite in condemning CBC North's decision to soon scrap territory-specific morning newscasts in favour of one, pan-territorial news broadcast. CBC North managing director Janice Stein announced the decision to staff on Monday. If the CBC's plan goes ahead, from January, the NWT, Yukon, and Nunavut will no longer each have their own five-minute newscasts – read by their own journalists – during weekday morning shows. However, Premier Silver launched a broadside against the decision later on Tuesday, writing to NWT Premier Caroline Cochrane and Nunavut Premier Joe Savikataaq to seek their support. Stein, the CBC North managing director, was understood to be booked as a guest on her own broadcaster's Wednesday morning NWT radio show.

Guest comment: We are all (eco)warriors now

November 18, 2019

NNSL Media - Some of our new soldiers wear traditional garb, though they are not fighting with guns. Others wear the protective clothing that shields them from the flames they battle or the floods they work to contain. This is discouraging; however and to her credit, in her interview on CBC’s The House last weekend, Caroline Cochrane did say that the government would be establishing a committee to look into climate change matters. Maybe so since we still have the same minister overseeing mining development and the government’s climate change strategy when it is clear that climate change oversight needs to be an arm operating independently and with the clout to act. Mother Earth is asking us to do our part – refuse to use plastic, refuse to pollute, plant trees; be aware.

Mining industry dinner lobbies fresh batch of MLAs

October 23, 2019

NNSL Media - Mining in the North will be on the rocks without timely action. That was the message for the incoming MLAs who milled into an Explorer Hotel conference room Tuesday evening. According to him, that’s mostly for two reasons: declining access with more protected areas and a “tough” regulatory regime. Vivian has made similar presentations to other groups of MLAs. In closing Tuesday, he flipped to a slide of a probable sunset and asked if it was sunrise or sundown for the territory’s mining industry.

NWT mining industry hosts MLAs in bid to set economic agenda

October 22, 2019

Cabin Radio - The NWT's mining industry body on Tuesday told newly elected MLAs the territory's strategy to encourage mining and exploration is "not working" and needs to be urgently revisited. The NWT and Nunavut Chamber of Mines, with the NWT Chamber of Commerce, delivered the warning as the groups lobbied MLAs during a dinner at Yellowknife's Explorer Hotel. The territorial government released its mineral development strategy in 2014, designed to "ensure lasting prosperity for NWT residents and communities" through the mining industry. Chamber bosses added the territory's mining industry had "fallen off the radar" for federal funding, describing small sums for studies as "a cheap way to buy you off." A presentation by Vivian about the NWT's economic prospects contained nothing new to anyone following the territory's mining industry.
