British delegation visits Yellowknife

A group of British MPs, led by the Rt Hon. Anne McGuire (Labour) was in Yellowknife last week as part of a delegation of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association.

During their visit, McGuire and two Conservative Party MPs spent time learning about some of the political and social issues facing the GNWT and Canada.

They spent April 10 at the legislative assembly listening to presentations on topics such as devolution, climate change and aboriginal rights as well a presentation from acting clerk Collette Langlois on consensus government entitled "inside the sausage maker."

Whirlwind for Michael Gilday

Yellowknife's Michael Gilday has been a busy boy this week after coming home April 6.

After taking some time to see his family, the Olympian has been doing plenty of stuff he said he "would've done anyway," such as skiing with young members of the Yellowknife Ski Club on Tuesday, joining a spin class at the Racquet Club on Wednesday, jumping rope with students at J.H. Sissons School yesterday and going out for a skate with the Yellowknife Speed Skating Club yesterday as well.
