Dennis Patterson Iqaluit

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. My question is to the Minister of Municipal and Community Affairs. Ordinarily, Mr. Speaker, I like to give notice of questions to Ministers, but today I would like to ask the Minister -- I know he is now familiar with his portfolio, having occupied it for some time and having been very diligent -- if he knows if northern municipalities, from whom contractors purchase or rent services or purchase materials qualify as northern purchasers under the business incentive policy? Thank you.

Written Question 29-12(7): Proposal Call For Orthodontic Services
Item 7: Written Questions

June 9th, 1995

Dennis Patterson Iqaluit

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I have two written questions. The first one is to the Minister of Health and Social Services.

Would the Minister for the Department of Health and Social Services please advise the House of the following:

What is the status of the proposal call to provide orthodontic services in the Baffin region?

Will it be possible to utilize the facilities of the existing private dental clinic in Iqaluit rather than going to the expense of constructing or renovating duplicate facilities to examine orthodontic patients in the regional hospital?

Written Question 30-12(7): Purchase Of Services From Northern Municipal Corporations
Item 7: Written Questions

Dennis Patterson Iqaluit

If I may, Mr. Speaker, another separate question is to the Minister of Public Works and Services.

Would the Minister responsible for the Department of Public Works and Services confirm that: Occasionally, when certain services or materials are not available in the private sector, contractors must purchase materials or supplies, services, or rent equipment from municipalities in the Northwest Territories.

Why do these purchases and rentals from northern municipal corporations not qualify as northern purchases under the business incentive policy?

Since our municipalities employ local people and obviously contribute to the local economy, will the Minister work with his colleague, the Minister of Municipal and Community Affairs, whether there is an appropriate method allowing such purchases to become qualified under the business incentive policy.

Thank you.
