Thank you, Mr. Speaker. To the Minister of Personnel. Mr. Speaker, I'd like to ask the Minister whether or not particularly in my riding, I know at times the Personnel department would allow representation and participation from the band or from the Metis with respect to the hiring process of government when they're hiring key positions at the senior level or at other levels within the government. Sometimes they allow for this participation. It appears though not to be consistent.

I would like to ask the Minister of Personnel whether or not he would consider active participation from the band and/or the Metis to assist in the hiring process, particularly for key positions at the regional level. Thank you.

Participation Of Aboriginal Groups In Hiring Senior Regional GNWT Employees

I know that the government has had involvement in a number of key positions when they're interviewing for those positions, to have a representative of the community be involved in the I don't know that it is part of the policy but I think it is a courtesy to involve local people, especially if the position is going to have an impact in the community. I certainly encourage the department to allow members of the community to participate in the interviews. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Since the Minister has encouraged this department to allow for participation from the community level because these positions do affect the community level and many times have a fairly great impact, would he consider requesting his department to develop some kind of policy to ensure that this direction is followed consistently? Thank you.

Question 656-12(7): Monitoring Fishing Activity At Trout Lake
Item 6: Oral Questions

Page 1413

Jim Antoine Nahendeh

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. My question is for the Minister of Renewable Resources. It's with regard to Trout Lake. Mr. Speaker, Trout Lake is a very good place to go fishing, you can catch a fish on the first or second cast. There's all kinds of different activity going on in the small community of Trout Lake and the people there benefit economically from people that go in there. However, I'm concerned and the people from Trout Lake are concerned about it as well. Recently, on my trips into the community, people were concerned about how many fish are taken out of the lake.

There's a river by the community and there's another river which is across the lake called Moose River. It's hard to monitor some of these locations on the lake because people fly in with their own planes to fish, and there's no way to monitor how much fish are being taken out of this community. I would like to ask the Minister if his department has looked into the situation in Trout Lake, and if they have, what are they doing to monitor fishing in this lake? Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I know the department has regulations about how many fish can be taken out of the Northwest Territories by sport fishermen. I also realize that to try to enforce a regulation which is not applied directly in the communities is very difficult to monitor. I believe renewable resource officers are out to as many camps as they possibly can be throughout the fishing season, and they are trying to enforce these regulations. That is a general policy followed across the Northwest Territories by our officers. Now, with respect to the particular area the honourable Member is asking about, I will have to check that out. Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. The situation I described is common in this area. Is there a possibility of having a renewable resource officer stationed in this community because there is a lot of activity going on with regard to fishing in this lake? Thank you.
