Welcome to my Web-site!
As Senator, it is my job to represent the people of the NWT in the Senate of Canada and to help promote the interests of the territory in Ottawa. It's also important that I keep people back home informed of what I do. To achieve that I write articles for the News/North, send out occasional newsletters and visit NWT communities as often as my schedule and budget allow.
This web-site is also designed to inform northerners about my activities and to give them a chance to let me know their concerns as well. At the bottom of this page, you can click on MAIL to send an e-mail to my office in Ottawa.
The left navigation bar connects to pages about my proposal to change the name of the NWT (where you can also give detailed feedback) as well as articles that have appeared in NewsNorth, speeches from the Senate, background information on several topical issues and pictures and links of interest to those in the North.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my web-site.
