It has been determined that the majority of Nain residents would not like to see Nain become a dry community.

This is following the results of a plebiscite held in the community yesterday.

A total of 524 voters out of an eligible 862 cast their vote.

That’s 61 percent of the eligible voters.

204 people voted in favor of a ban.

Which is 39 percent of the votes cast.

While 318 voted against the ban.

61 percent of the votes cast.

Two of the ballots were declared spoiled.

Sarah Leo, the AngajuKak for the Nain Inuit Community Government (NICG), says she is very pleased with the amount of people who came out and cast their vote.

The results of the plebiscite will be discussed this evening during the NICG’s regular meeting.
