A town councillor in Inuvik, N.W.T., has pleaded not-guilty to three charges.

Kurt Wainman is charged with assault, uttering threats and forcing his way into a house. He faces court conditions not to contact three women in the community.

Wainman did not appear in Inuvik court Monday — his lawyer entered a not-guilty  plea to each of the  three charges on Wainman's  behalf.

The trial is set for Jan. 15 in Inuvik.
