Says Chief Clifford Daniels, “The public has spoken. I have formally advised the Minister of Finance of the results, and I have requested that they now proceed with all the appropriate legislation. Hopefully, everything can pass the Legislature so the ban can be lifted on April 1, 2017. It is now in the hands of the Territorial Government. The Community Government of Behchokǫ̀ has done all we legally can do.”
