City seeks input on tourism levy

The city is asking residents to give their views on tourism promotion and a potential hotel levy. The levy is being proposed on visitor accommodation in order to raise money for the city to fund a destination marketing organization focused on promoting Yellowknife.

The city wants residents to complete an online survey and give their opinion on: what the city should do to promote tourism, how the city should raise money to promote it and what percentage a hotel levy should be.

Man charged in fatal crash denied bail

A man charged with impaired driving causing death in a Victoria Day weekend crash on the Ingraham Trail has been denied bail. Joshua Moore, 29, appeared in front of Justice of the Peace Kevin Dennis for a bail hearing last Thursday. The next day, Dennis refused to grant Moore bail. The reasons for his decision are covered by a publication ban. Moore faces several charges in connection with the May 21 crash that saw the car he was allegedly driving end up in a pond off the Ingraham Trail, near Prosperous Lake. Karen Lafferty, 30, of Behchoko was killed in the crash.
