The Yellowknives Dene First Nation has a simple response to its MLA Steve Norn: “What has been said has been said.”
He also said he would not be stepping down.
Norn allegedly broke his isolation a day early and went to the Legislative Assembly. While not explicitly linking to this allegation, other MLAs directed Caucus Chair Rylund Johnson to file a complaint against Norn with the integrity commissioner.
YKDFN’s recent statement went on, “We await the outcome of the integrity commissioner for the Northwest Territories on this matter.”
Not all of Norn constituents feel the same way.
Deninu Kųę́ First Nation Chief Louis Balsillie sent a letter to MLAs supporting Norn.
