Question 324-12(5): Policy For Advertising Of Middle Management Positions In Southern Newspapers

Tony Whitford Yellowknife South

Thank you, Madam Speaker. I have a question to direct to the Minister of Personnel. It deals with advertising for positions in the Northwest Territories. I, and many of my colleagues, believe we have a hire north policy and a buy north policy that wherever possible we'll search high and low for qualified people here within our boundaries before we go south. I would like to know what is the policy for advertising positions, not senior positions, but more junior level positions in the southern newspapers?

Thank you, Madam Speaker. We don't have a policy for southern advertisement in terms of junior positions. The only time the advertisement is placed in southern newspapers is when we have advertised more than once across the north, and we either didn't get a response or we didn't find a suitable person for the position. Thank you.

Thank you, Madam Speaker. I understand that we do advertise in the north as well, but if we advertise on February 21 in the north, then February 26 in the southern papers and again on March 4, it's hardly time for any response to come from the north. I just wonder why there isn't a period of time that should be allowed, a reasonable time. I just wonder if there's a policy that we send out ads in the north and the southern papers simultaneously, and not give a chance to northerners to respond.

Thank you, Madam Speaker. I try to monitor the southern advertisements very closely. If I do have a concern, I usually hold them until I get a satisfactory response from my DM of Personnel. In this incident about which Mr. Whitford is asking, it could be that the advertisements were placed both north and south. I will look into it because I don't have the details on that particular advertisement, and get back to the Member with the information in a few days. Thank you.

Question 325-12(5): Plans For Oral History Tapes

Thank you, Madam Speaker. My question is for the Minister of Education, Culture and Employment. This has to do with a recent advertisement that I have noticed for oral traditional projects. I understand that there are tapes from previous projects which have been stored by the department

and kept in the museum. I support collecting the oral histories. I think that's one way of capturing the knowledge of our elders who we're losing nearly every day. Can the Minister tell me if his department has any plans for these tapes that he has stored? Are they available? Are they going to transcribe them and distribute them to the public? What are the plans of his department for this project? Thank you.

Thank you, Madam Speaker. I'm not sure what the plans are, but I do know that previously the museum has made copies available to various communities so they could have access to the documentation and the tapes that have been provided. In some cases, in fact, the information has been translated into English so the stories or the information provided was made available to the communities, both in terms of the original tape or a copy of the original tape and the translation of those particular stories and information that was provided.

Thank you, Madam Speaker. Is the Minister telling us that there is a catalogue listing of what is available, and that the public has access to these tapes? Is that what the Minister is telling us? Thank you.
