NNSL Media - Embattled MLA Steve Norn told Yellowknifer on a phone call he has no plans to resign. Norn faces criticism that he came out of self-isolation to enter the legislative assembly on April 17, the day before his isolation period was scheduled to end. The Commissioner can also dismiss the complaint for a reason set out in section 102 of the Legislative Assembly and Executive Council Act. “We are aware of concerns raised regarding his violation in going to the Legislative Assembly after hours during his recent isolation upon returning from travel out of the NWT,” Balsillie wrote. NNSL Media attempted to reach Jason Snaggs, chief executive officer of the Yellowknives Dene First Nation (YKDFN) on Tuesday, but he was unavailable.

Cabin Radio - A proposed new quarry to be constructed near Vee Lake cleared its first obstacle on Monday night as Yellowknife city councillors approved two bylaws related to land transfer. The bylaws authorize the City of Yellowknife to acquire land from the territorial government and then lease the same land to Det'on Cho Construction for the quarry. After that, Det'on Cho would have to seek a development permit – returning the process to councillors for further approval. "There is significant public concern from residents of Yellowknife," Silke said, presenting to council. Det'on Cho has pledged to widen the Vee Lake Road and carry out other safety measures if the project goes ahead.
