Mary Beckett is the NDP’s candidate for the upcoming federal election, and the first of CKLB’s candidate profiles. Beckett has lived in Inuvik for 35 years and has spent most of that time helping individuals and small businesses grow.
She spoke with Francis Tessier-Burns on bringing a green economy to the NWT, cost of living and land claims, among other issues.
The federal election will be on October 21. Keep an eye out for CKLB’s ongoing candidate profiles until then.
