Letter to the Editor

My Doyon candidacy



To the editor: We will hold a meeting in the near future. Hopefully it would be in an ideal location for all Doyon shareholders.

Come join us and we will all be a part of Doyon’s elite. We shall work together for the good of all Doyon shareholders, from the eldest to the youngest.

We shall work together to make a better future for all of us, regardless of you being a shareholder or not. This means people from all walks of life may join us.

Some of our concerns would be that if a shareholder needs the money to help his family, he has the inherent right to sell his shares back to his village corporation or to Doyon, Limited.

Also, we would support any village that wants its subsurface rights restored. For the village, this means more economic freedom and more financial stability.

The villages would finally receive some justice and equality, which would finally settle some of the major issues that have been looming for some time.

With that, I am announcing my candidacy for the Doyon, Limited board of directors. That means I would be a write-in candidate.
