Former MLA awaits sentencing
Former Nanulik MLA James Arvaluk is set to be sentenced on Sept. 16.
Arvaluk was found guilty of assault causing bodily harm related to an incident in August 2000 in Coral Harbour.
The verdict was made on June 16. Arvaluk resigned four days later.
Residents in Coral Harbour and Chesterfield Inlet go to the polls to elect a new MLA for the constituency on Sept. 2.
Arvaluk has said he is taking the summer off, but has not ruled out a return to politics.
