Caribou restrictions
The GNWT has deemed the Bathurst caribou at risk and is now taking measures to protect the dwindling herd, estimated at less than 32,000 animals. The plan includes restricted hunting in the South Slave and parts of the North Slave and a no-harvesting zone spanning more than 120,000 kilometres. The no-harvesting zone restricts hunting to everyone including aboriginal harvesters. Do you agree with the decision? Will you abide by the restrictions?

New year
A lot has happened in the past 12 months here in the territory, around Canada and abroad. What do you think has been the most significant territorial, Canadian or world event of 2009? As you look forward to 2010 what are you hoping to see happen? Have you made any personal new year resolutions?

Shining a light in the dark
Filmmaker Raymond Yakeleya is delving into dark territory with his new documentary on suicide. His work will focus on sharing the stories of the past students of Grollier Hall residential school who took their lives. Suicide is often considered a taboo topic to discuss, even the media is at odds over whether it should be reported publicly. What do you think? Should suicide be discussed more openly?

Liquor restrictions
Both Tutoyaktuk and Aklavik held plebiscites to restrict alcohol in the communities. Tuk residents supported restrictions while the people of Aklavik defeated the idea. However, both votes were close demonstrating there is a mixed opinion over alcohol use. Should governments control liquor sales? Should people be forced to be responsible for themselves?

John Pollard is the chief federal negotiator who will lead consultations and negotiations with the GNWT and aboriginal leaders on how land and water boards will be structured. No need to reopen land claims: negotiator
