N.W.T. MLAs return to the house this afternoon for the fall session of the legislative assembly in Yellowknife.


The fall session of the N.W.T. legislative assembly starts Thursday afternoon with an update from Premier Bob McLeod.

During the three-week session they are expected to pass the capital budget. That will determine where the infrastructure dollars go and what roads, schools and health centres get money. 

MLAs are also expected to vote on the new wildlife act, liquor act and education act and they will debate the electoral boundaries commission report.

The commission looked at three scenarios — getting rid of one seat, adding two new ones or keeping 19 MLAs but re-drawing the riding boundaries. 

The session starts this afternoon with an update from the premier.
