On Monday, October 17, 2011, the 17th Assembly swore in it’s newly (re)elected Member of the Legislative Assembly.
The ceremony started with a promise to govern fairly, putting the needs of the people before personal gains.
The MLAs then proceeded to sign official documents (in alphabetical order according to riding) with George Tuccaro, the Commissioner of the NWT, making everything legit.
