N.W.T deputy HR minister axed

Yellowknife — The official in charge of centralizing personnel services in the Northwest Territories government has been let go. Deputy Minister of Human Resources Lynn Elkin, a 17-year veteran of the territorial government, told the CBC it was Premier Floyd Roland who showed her the door. The department was founded in 2006 but has faced several challenges, including glitches with its main personnel computer system last year.
