A Behchoko, N.W.T., lawyer who ran in the last territorial election said she is launching a defamation suit against a family member of her opponent.

Bertha Rabesca Zoe ran in the Monfwi riding during the 2011 election. She said a cousin of her opponent, Education Minister Jackson Lafferty, defamed her during the campaign.

Zoe presented to a government committee on Wednesday. The committee was called to review the 2011 election.

Zoe told the committee members that she faced discrimination during the election because she is a woman.


Bertha Rabesca Zoe
Greetings to all residents of Monfwi Riding

I was born and raised in Behchokö and I speak Tlicho fluently. I am married to John B. Zoe and we have 4 children and 5 grandchildren.

I finished grade 9 at the Chief Jimmy Bruneau School and graduated from Sir John Franklin Territorial High School in Yellowknife.
I worked with Dogrib Rae Band as bookkeeper for a number of years before becoming Executive Director of the Rae-Edzo Friendship Centre.

After working as Bookkeeper for the Dogrib Rae Band and as Executive Director for the Rae-Edzo Friendship Centre, I decided I want to go to University to further my education and follow my childhood dream, which was to become a lawyer. I attended the University of Alberta, my major was Native Studies and minor in Political Science. I transfer to the University of Alberta Law School and received my law degree in 2003. I became a member of the Law Society of Upper Canada (Ontario, 2004) and a member of the Law Society of Northwest Territories in 2005. I worked for the Law Firm of Pape Salter Teillet as an associate Lawyer and became sole practitioner in 2010. I was legal counsel to Dogrib Treaty 11 Council then the Tlicho Government.
