Today Premier McLeod issued the following statement on the appointment of the new NWT Senator.
“On behalf of the people of the Northwest Territories I wish to congratulate Ms. Margaret Dawn Anderson on her recent appointment to the Canadian Senate.
"Senator Anderson has extensive experience working in the community justice and governance fields with over 20 years of experience with the Government of the Northwest Territories and most recently with the Inuvialuit Regional Corporation.
“The Northwest Territories has a strong history of Senate representatives raising awareness of the unique strengths Northerners possess and challenges they face. I am confident that Senator Anderson will work to advance Northwest Territories priorities with her colleagues in Ottawa, all the while championing the strengths that our territory and its peoples bring to Canadian society, and I look forward to working with her in her new role.”
