Street outreach to continue

The safe-ride program will continue despite the closure of the city's sobering centre, according to a news release from the city yesterday.

A temporary sobering centre was being housed at the Yellowknife Community Arena, but shut down earlier this month. The program's van takes people who are at risk or vulnerable to existing shelters in the city, their home, or another safe place as needed. A new, proposed downtown location for the sobering centre will be reviewed by city council on Monday.

Police memorial ceremony Sunday

The public is invited to Sunday's Canadian Police and Peace Officers' National Memorial Day Service at RCMP headquarters in Yellowknife. The 40th annual event is being held to honour police and peace officers who died in the line of duty over the years, including the 58 individuals killed in the NWT, Nunavut and the Yukon. The service begins at 11 a.m. at the G Division headquarters on Memorial Drive.

Chamber beats record

The Yellowknife Chamber of Commerce has received a record 92 nominations for its annual business awards, up from 53 in 2016. Now in its fourth year, the awards honour local businesses across 10 categories. Chamber programs coordinator Kendra Lakeman attributed the upswing in nominations to a new online form. Previously people had to email their submissions.

Winners will be announced at the Business Award Gala at The Explorer Hotel on Oct. 20.

Late-night travelers left out in the cold

A Hay River MLA's request in the legislative assembly on Tuesday to have the Yellowknife airport stay open 24 hours has been rebuffed by the minister of Infrastructure.

Hay River North MLA R.J. Simpson asked if a small area of the airport could be kept open for travellers passing through Yellowknife. Minister Wally Schumann, also a Hay River representative, said it is too expensive to keep the airport open around the clock, but the government would continue to monitor the situation.
