Thank you, Madam Speaker. Could I ask the honourable Minister of Municipal and Community Affairs if she could provide the rationale that was provided through her office which she based her decision on, to the House or to me? Thank you.

Thank you, Madam Speaker. As I have already indicated, the rationale for the reorganization of this department was based on realigning the resources that we have within the department and to realign the divisions that fell under two deputy ministers, which is now one. It was just to get the department streamlined with the existing divisions that the department has with the number of resources and staff. Thank you.

Thank you, Madam Speaker. My question is to the Minister responsible for Housing. He got a very well-deserved reputation over the last year and a half of making visits to Ottawa to convince the federal government to restore the funding for social housing. I would like to ask the Minister, are those attempts still continuing?

Thank you, Madam Speaker. I would like to ask the Minister, what was the last initiative that he took with the federal government in order to convince them this was a federal responsibility?

Thank you, Madam Speaker. At the end of last June, I was at a Ministers' meeting in New Brunswick. All provincial Ministers were meeting there and I raised the issue then with the Minister. Every time I meet with the federal Minister of Housing, I let him know in no uncertain terms that it's my understanding and my belief that the federal government has the responsibility to supply housing to aboriginal people in the Northwest Territories, and I don't believe they're living up to that responsibility. Thank you.

Thank you, Madam Speaker. Since listening to Mr. Pollard's address that we are now providing the money for social housing through our own budgetary process, I would like to ask the Minister does this then mean that we've accepted the federal government off-loading and it's now become our responsibility because it's reflected in our budget?
