Mr. Speaker, I understand that the Canadian proposal in the negotiation, according to newspaper reports, is to give Spain more turbot, more of the share of the Canadian allocation of turbot, in return for agreement from Spain for better enforcement and more accountability for not over-fishing and not using undersized nets, et cetera. I would like to ask the Minister if Spain is given more turbot by Canada under negotiations, what would this do to the opportunities for northern fishermen to get a fair share of a diminishing allocation of turbot within Canada? Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I believe that that would be a question suitable for the Minister

of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. But I could speculate that the share that the Northwest Territories has had of the quota in the Atlantic Ocean, has been very minimal. In fact, it has been reduced in the past year.

However, in discussions that I have had with the Minister of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, he has indicated to me that there is room for fishermen in the Northwest Territories. And that we should be able to get involved in the areas that the Department of Fisheries and Oceans has been managing on the Atlantic Ocean, especially in the waters around Baffin and Greenland.

In the meeting I attended with department officials, I had asked the Minister whether a workshop with the department of fisheries officials and the Nunavut wildlife management board -- who are probably a large part of our stakeholders in the Northwest Territories -- should be getting together in the near future. That was left with the Nunavut wildlife management board -- who, at the time, were just getting started with the staff -- to try to come up with a time line whereby they would be able to get together with the officials of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

I would like to table Tabled Document 68-12(7), a letter from the Arctic Institute of North America in Calgary, dated March 26th, signed by Ross Goodwin, the manager of the arts and science technology information system. His final sentence is "I hope you are successful in convincing the majority of MLAs to preserve the library possession of the northern heritage centre library."

The second document, Mr. Speaker, if I may, Tabled Document 69-12(7), is from the Canadian Circumpolar Library at the University of Alberta. It is dated March 22nd, and it is signed by Linda Seale, who is a librarian at that institution, urging us to understand the impact of not having a librarian to look after a world-class library.

If I may, Mr. Speaker, Tabled Document 70-12(7) is a letter from the University of Alberta, dated March 22nd, signed by Robin Minion from the Canadian Circumpolar Library, asking us to examine the library and estimate the impact of not having a librarian at that institution.

And, finally, Mr. Speaker, Tabled Document 71-12(7) is a letter from Susan Baer, president of the NWT Library Association. It is a copy of a letter sent to Mr. Nerysoo, which urges him -- there are lots of other letters that he has received also, Mr. Speaker -- about the importance of this library, not only to the territories but also to Canada and to the international community. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.
