Message from Tony Noakes, Nunavut's former fire marshal
I'm glad this ordeal is over.
For widest distribution:
After a lengthy legal process, I am extremely pleased to announce that a settlement has been reached between the Government of Nunavut and myself.
It is great to have resolved my issues with the Government of Nunavut. I cannot underscore the need to continue any challenges in the face of overwhelming adversity.
While the specific details of the settlement cannot be disclosed, I van certainly state that this settlement is a precedent in terms of employment related litigation.
I thank the supporters from across Canada that have kept me in positive spirits throughout this matter.
I thank my legal team for their ongoing support and their belief in this case.
I look forward to re-establishing my career in the fire service as a senior fire officer and I once again thank all of you for your support.
Tony Noakes Fire Marshal NU (Ret.)
