Thank you, Mr. Speaker. In keeping with our regional thrust in Mr. Patterson's area as well as others, there is an overall plan to increase the technical where withal in each of these regional offices so that it will be more autonomous from the centre. Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I am hopefully going to be in the position later next week to have an overall plan as it relates to increasing the required services in regional offices, both east and west, in preparation for the orderly transfer towards the division of the territories. And at that time, I should be able to share that strategic plan with the honourable Member and this House, if they so wish. Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, I believe the Union of Northern Workers is exercising its right as an organization, and their representative is exercising his or her right to sit in the audience and listen to us talk. God knows, we need the audience, Mr. Speaker, thank you.

Question 351-12(7): Strategy Re Monitoring Air Quality
Item 6: Oral Questions

Michael Ballantyne Yellowknife North

I have a question for the Minister of Renewable Resources. Mr. Speaker, over the last number of years, many Members of this House have expressed concern about probably the deadliest environmental threat that we're facing in the Northwest Territories; that is caused by airborne pollutants from the old Soviet Union and other places in the world. We have in our sea mammals levels of toxins six to seven times the acceptable rate. This has been a concern expressed by many Members in this House. My question to the Minister is, what is the strategy being pursued by this government in dealing with this very serious and insidious problem?

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. At the present time, the only air quality monitoring that has taken place has been here in the city of Yellowknife. The amount of equipment that is required to monitor air quality has not allowed it to expand much further than addressing the concerns raised by residents of the city in terms of the quality of air surrounding Yellowknife. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.
