Question O56-12(1): Transferring Money Through Northern Stores
Item 5: Oral Questions

Page 61

Samuel Gargan Deh Cho

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I have a concern that I would like to express to the Government Leader. Last week when I was in Yellowknife I went into Northern to transfer some money to my family in Fort Providence. At the same time, I also have one boy that goes to school here and we transfer money through Northern to him. I asked the clerk at Northern at that time what the intention is once Northern is transferred to Canadian Tire; whether or not that service would still be provided. The clerk does not know.

This is going to be a concern for a lot of students across the NWT, not only within my constituency, and also even people in Yellowknife that are broke; it is going to be a concern to them that they do not have the money to pick up at Northern today, when moneys are required.

Has Madam Minister looked at what could be done to help those people? Or have any of the other Ministers thought about the implications that the sale of Northern is going to create?

Mr. Speaker, I am like the clerk; I do not know.

---Laughter

I have not taken the detailed analysis of that, but to tell you the truth, I did think about it. I will check into the issue. I do not know exactly which stores are going to be sold, exactly. We can take a look at the implications of that. Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I would like to ask the Government Leader, in addition to all the cuts that she has announced to the House, has the Leader also asked each Minister to provide guidelines for departments on different ways in which they can conserve or save money? Has there been some kind of guideline given throughout the administration so that they can tighten up a little bit for the next few months?

Supplementary to the Minister responsible for Social Services, my friend, Mr. Whitford. Would it be such a detailed guideline that, for example, if you are an inmate at the Yellowknife Correctional Institute, instead of using your Bic razor for one shave, you have to use that for the whole week now, so you will be saving an awful lot of money by using that razor for a week rather than for one day?

Mr. Speaker, that is a question that probably would be better answered by the Minister of Finance.

Mr. Speaker, if the Department of Social Services is making those Bic razors go for a week instead of one day, I am simply delighted. Thank you.
