(Translation) Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I'll speak in Inuktitut at this time. I have a question to be directed to Mr. Stephen Kakfwi, the honourable Minister of the Department of Justice. Probably two months ago, he said he would try to look into getting an RCMP detachment in Arctic Bay. The mayor wrote to the Department of Justice and has not received an answer, Mr. Speaker.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. The Department of Justice, as are other departments, is in the process of developing finalized business plans to present to the House in late April or some time in May. Those will contain what we will propose to spend, for instance, in the area of policing in the coming year. Until we've completed that, we are unable to respond. If the mayor from the Member's constituency has not received the courtesy of a reply, then I will ensure that is done right away. But until the budget is finalized, we are unable to give any definitive statements to communities that are requesting additional RCMP, or just the presence of RCMP where there are presently none. Thank you.

Question 15-13(2): Subsidization Policy On Alcohol In Nwt
Item 6: Oral Questions

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I'll be directing my question to the Minister responsible for the Liquor Commission. Based on some research that I had the research department undertake for me -- which indicated that per capita, residents of the Northwest Territories consume more alcohol than anyone else in Canada -- based on their statistics, I have learned that the vast majority of residents of the North who are incarcerated in the corrections facilities are there on alcohol-related offences. I would like to ask the Minister responsible for the Liquor Commission if this government subsidizes the distribution of alcohol in the Northwest Territories.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. The NWT Liquor Commission and the Liquor Board make revenue every year from the sale of alcohol in the North. From there, they have a revolving fund from the sale of the liquor products of about $9 million a year. Then on top of that, they have a profit of $15 million that goes back into the general coffers of the Northwest Territories. The sale of liquor revolves back into the whole NWT Liquor Commission as well as the Liquor Board. In that way, it's hard to tell whether the government is subsidizing the distribution of alcohol. I think it's self-funded, more than government subsidized. Thank you.

Supplementary question. Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Is the price of alcohol standardized throughout the Northwest Territories regardless of the location at which it is sold? If so, I would like to know how much the Government of the Northwest Territories, how much of that budget from liquor sales is actually spent on equalizing those prices at the retail level? Thank you.

Question 16-13(2): Status Of Proposed Name Change For Aurora Campus

Floyd Roland Inuvik

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. My question is directed to the Minister of Education, Culture and Employment. A while ago, I received a letter requesting a possible name change of the Aurora Campus in Inuvik. I've since replied to that and others, as well, I believe, have replied to that. I haven't heard back from the department as to what's going to happen. I would like to know if the name is going to remain the same or change. Thank you.
