Thank you, Madam Speaker. As Mr. Lewis knows, there have been some problems in this area, especially with the private business people. My department informs me that their participation in this will be to make improvements that are necessary to create opportunities for public involvement, including any final proposals, and to

assess, with much more certainty, the impact of the plan. They will be involved in discussions in this area. Thank you.

Thank you, Madam Speaker. I think we all agree that the capital site is something we should all be proud of. There has been a lot of work done and people are very happy to see development taking place. However, since this capital plan was proposed to the public and the city of Yellowknife was asked to make some changes so that this plan could become a reality, what is the status of the plan right now? I am talking about the one that was made public in February.

Thank you, Madam Speaker. There have been some changes in handling this issue. Discussions will include establishing an equal partnership between the city and the GNWT in the management of the capital area and changing the theme of the plan to one of both looking out from the Legislative Assembly building and looking in at the capital area. Thank you.

Thank you, Madam Speaker. What time frame does she have in mind so that this process can be completed and eventually have the detailed plan approved by the city council and the Government of the Northwest Territories?

Thank you, Madam Speaker. I am not aware of the time frame, but because of the recent elections that have occurred, my department officials will be meeting with the new mayor and having discussions from there. I will keep the Members of Yellowknife informed of the progress as to where we are with this one. Thank you.

Thank you, Madam Speaker. Madam Speaker, this is subsequent to my Member's statement regarding the social assistance payments paid to recipients in my area. I have talked to many people in Pelly Bay and Taloyoak regarding the same issue. Many of those recipients are very frustrated. They are saying this new initiative makes life more difficult, as we know it is very difficult for them already. Has the Minister of Health and Social Services done anything so far to deal with the matter, as requested by the people in Pelly Bay and social assistance recipients of Taloyoak? Thank you.

Madam Speaker, could the Member clarify what specific issue? There are many issues under Health and Social Services from his constituency that we are dealing with. I am not sure specifically what topic he is referring to.

Question 269-12(6): Difficulties Cashing Social Assistance Cheques In Natilikmiot
Item 6: Oral Questions

Page 562

John Ningark Natilikmiot

Thank you, Madam Speaker. I should have been a bit more specific in my question. A few years ago, because of the request by the Kitikmeot Regional Council, the Minister at the time made a policy that people of my riding, namely people of Gjoa Haven, Taloyoak and Pelly Bay, who were receiving social assistance were not allowed to cash social assistance payments fully. They were only allowed to cash very small portions of the social assistance cheques. The rest were vouchers. Has the Minister received any requests from the community of Pelly Bay regarding the same issue? I know people have communicated with her during the past summer. Thank you.
