The building that’s home to some tense political debates is now cheerily decorated for the holiday season.

The Legislative Assembly of Nunavut is joining other centres of territorial and provincial politics in the 2020 Christmas Lights Across Canada program.

“Although public health guidelines concerning large gatherings did not allow us to hold the traditional lighting ceremony at the legislative assembly, we warmly invite Nunavummiut to view our display of festive lights,” Speaker Paul Quassa said. “During this challenging and unprecedented time, it is more important than ever that we draw strength from the spirit of the season.”
