Thank you, Madam Speaker. I would like to ask the Minister, are those the only two communities in the NWT with that status or are there others? Thank you.

Written Question 1-12(7): Southampton Island Caribou Herd
Item 7: Written Questions

Page 20

James Arvaluk Aivilik

Thank you, Madam Speaker. I have a written question to the Premier.

There is a strong serious conservation issue on Southampton Island. The Department of Renewable Resources has advised the local hunters that if there is not a major culling of the caribou herd, the herd will die off from lack of food. Local hunters are prepared to reduce the herd.

Would the Premier please advise this House if the herd will not be reduced enough to deal with the conservation issue in the spring of 1995, will the government commit to bringing the abattoir back to the island early in the fall of 1995 to allow for the proper reduction of the caribou herd?

Written Question 2-12(7): Distribution Of Caribou Meat From Southampton Herd
Item 7: Written Questions

November 14th, 1994

James Arvaluk Aivilik

Madam Speaker, I have another written question to the same Minister regarding the distribution of caribou meat from the Southampton herd.

When culling a caribou herd, the hunters do not like to leave meat to waste. It is also not politically wise to waste meat in light of the European view of the fur industry. As the Minister of Economic Development has indicated, we do have fully developed markets for wild meat to allow for all of the Southampton herd cull to be sold. However, there are many people in the NWT who are on social assistance who could benefit from free meat. As well, there are many institutions in the NWT: hospitals, correctional centres, seniors' facilities, which could benefit from this meat.

Will the Premier commit the government departments to working together to find a way to get the caribou meat from the Southampton herd reduction to these institutions and people who can use it? Thank you, Madam Speaker.

Thank you, Madam Speaker. I have Petition No. 1-12(7), signed by 130 residents of Cambridge Bay raising a concern about the lack of public consultation surrounding the building of a road by Fred H. Ross and Associates outside of the community. They are requesting that the territorial government investigate the specific incident to ensure that projects that impact on the environment in the future should have full public consultation, which includes advertising public meetings and full participation in the local Inuit association, the HTA, regardless if the land is Inuit owned, Crown land or a Department of National Defence reserve. Thank you.
