Thank you, Mr. Speaker. On Thursday, December 12, 1991, I give notice that I will move the following motion: Whereas the problem of the abuse of alcohol is affecting many individuals and families in our society in the Northwest Territories; and whereas if individuals continue only to talk about alcohol abuse and take no concrete action; and whereas it is critical that every action should be taken by elected officials to play their part; and whereas the Legislative Assembly and the Government of the Northwest Territories should not be providing alcohol free of charge at sponsored events; and whereas public funds should not be used to provide alcohol free of charge to people attending government-sponsored functions; now therefore, I move, seconded by the honourable Member for Baffin Central, that this Legislative Assembly adopts a policy that public funds should not be used to provide alcohol at government or Legislative Assembly events.
