The NWT’s environment and communities minister is set to visit Enterprise for the first time since the hamlet was devastated by a wildfire.
Shane Thompson said on Saturday he had been in talks with Enterprise Mayor Michael St Amour about visiting the community “to see the impact on it.”
On Tuesday morning, the NWT government said Thompson will tour Enterprise, Hay River and Fort Smith between Tuesday and Wednesday this week, accompanied by St Amour, Hay River Mayor Kandis Jameson and the deputy mayor of Fort Smith, Jay Macdonald.
“He will also be meeting with firefighters to thank them for their work on the South Slave wildfires,” the territory stated.
