Thank You Joe Handley: Its Election Day in the NWT

It is Election Day today in the North West Territories. That is one of the most exciting places in Canada and is home to some of the most interesting characters you will ever meet too.

I often describe the NWT as another Alberta in the making but North of 60. They can avoid and even learn from the mistakes we are making down here – if they are careful.

Thanks to retiring NWT Premier Joe Handley – a great guy who did a great job for the NWT. He also made the south aware of the northern people and its potential. In the process he taught us to appreciate Canada in a different - and better way.
