Speaker of the Legislative Assembly of Nunavut[edit]

  • Symbol possible vote.svg Article just makes it in terms of meeting the minimum length requirements but it is a topic with not much to say about it, so that's fair. Also, [almost] each person is footnoted which is great. The hook is cited directly and correctly although I would change the wording in the article to make it clearer that Hunter was not merely "present" but an elected member of it originally). Currently the "deputy speaker" section only includes one person (is this because the position didn't exist before/after, or because there are no sources?) - which is insufficient in my opinion for a separate section. I'd recommend including the deputy as a new column in the main table, making it prose or, ideally to increase the comprehensiveness of that section. Also, I don't know anything about Nunavut politics but is it possible to also include the speakers' political party as is done in the equivalent article Speaker of the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba? So... just a couple of things which I hope are easy to respond to, then I'm "support". :-) Wittylama 10:20, 20 December 2011 (UTC)
  • The hook, at 214 characters including spaces, is too long. It will have to be shortened before the DYK can be approved. BlueMoonset (talk) 17:16, 22 December 2011 (UTC)
  • Sorry for the delay in responding. I'll try to address all of your concerns in one shot. I've removed the Deputy Speaker section because I don't feel it is long enough to warrant its own heading. Besides, if anyone wants to add it to the main article, they are free to. Per consensus government, there are no political parties in Nunavut. BlueMoonset, good point.
