  • Nov. 1, 2018 Passed Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, I move, seconded by the honourable Member for Range Lake, that Bill 31, Northwest Territories 9-1-1 Act, be read for the second time. The bill directs the Minister of Municipal and Community Affairs to establish the NWT 9-1-1 service, a service for receiving and transferring emergency calls within the NWT. The bill binds the Government of the Northwest Territories and mandates the participation of telecommunications carriers, local authorities, and emergency service providers in the NWT 9-1-1 service. The bill establishes a 9-1-1 cost-recovery fee and requires every local subscriber to a telephone service to pay the fee. Telecommunications carriers are required to comply with any prescribed registration and reporting requirements and to bill subscribers, collect the fee, and remit the fee to the Government of the Northwest Territories. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.
