Democratic Reform

I will prioritize policies that strengthen our democracy and reduce barriers to the participation of Northerners in our democracy.

  • Form a special committee on democratic reform that will study ways to improve our democracy in full consultation with NWT residents from every community
  • Lower the residency requirement for voters from the current 1 year to the national average of 6 months
  • Loosen political and volunteer restrictions of public servants in non-restricted government positions to allow their full participation in the political process
