Cabin Radio hosted the NWT’s federal election candidates in a live forum on Thursday evening. You can watch it on demand using the video player above.

There are five candidates hoping to become the Northwest Territories’ next MP: Liberal Michael McLeod, New Democrat Kelvin Kotchilea, Conservative Lea Mollison, Green Roland Laufer, and independent Jane Groenewegen.

Mollison chose not to take part in the forum, notifying Cabin Radio of her decision earlier on Thursday. She gave no reason and did not respond to multiple attempts to reach her.


Host Ollie Williams led the candidates through a 90-minute discussion of how they and, where applicable, their parties propose to tackle the challenges the territory faces.

Audio from this broadcast will be repeated on Cabin Radio’s live stream at 10am on Friday.

Polling day is September 20. For more information about voting, head to the Elections Canada website.
