The first in our city council byelection profile series
Iqaluit’s municipal by-election to fill two vacant seats on city council, set for April 10, has drawn a diverse crop of candidates with different views on how to tackle the Nunavut capital’s looming challenges, starting with the city’s deficit.
The two winning candidates will join a city council in the middle of its mandate, but they will face critical decisions on the city’s outdated infrastructure, spending practices and future growth.
Nunatsiaq News reached out to the candidates and asked them what they hope to accomplish if elected April 10 as well as their thoughts on infrastructure spending versus deficit reduction, and housing development.
