    Allison Camenzulli, creative director and partner in Kellett Communications was named business person of the year. The creative agency has locations in Yellowknife and Whitehorse.

    Oil and gas industry now reports directly to NWT safety authority

    SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - On April 1, the Workers Safety and Compensation Commission (WSCC) became responsible for administering health and safety regulations surrounding all onshore oil and gas properties.
