Thank you, Madam Speaker. Madam Speaker, my question is directed to the Minister of Education, Culture and Employment. Madam Speaker, from time to time, students of the NWT take part in student exchange programs or trips to other jurisdictions and sometimes to other countries. In order to make such trips possible, they have to go through the ambitious fund-raising programs. One of the main obstacles that I know of is to accommodate the enormous airfare in going from one place to another. My question to the honourable Minister is, does the department have a policy or program to assist schools in making such a trip possible? Thank you.

(Translation) Thank you, Madam Speaker. I have a question to the Minister of Education, Culture and Employment. Recently, the Minister of Education, Culture and Employment attended meetings of the Keewatin Divisional Board of Education. Could the Minister advise whether he answered questions about the impact of the potential cuts in federal funding for aboriginal languages on the aboriginal languages program provided by the Keewatin Divisional Board of Education?

(Translation) Thank you, Madam Speaker. In his response, did he mention the report of the Languages Commissioner, which highlighted the lapsed money for aboriginal languages?

Thank you, Madam Speaker. I indicated to the board that one of the documents that was being used as an argument for the reduction of resources was the report of the Languages Commissioner.

Thank you, Madam Speaker. We heard on the radio that the Minister inferred that the Languages Commissioner's report was, in part, responsible for highlighting the lapsed money to the federal government, which resulted in the proposed cuts.
