Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, I am aware that we have to do what is in the best interest of saving dollars, but it is my understanding that it was a local company that was also in the running for this contract, and unfortunately a company from outside the north was selected to deliver this contract. Was northern preference considered when this contract was awarded? Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, northern preference is not a factor in considering fuel purchases by either the Government of the Northwest Territories or the Power Corporation in their operations. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, my question is directed to the Minister of Transportation, Mr. Roland. Mr. Speaker, my question follows up on my honourable colleague from Thebacha, Mr. Miltenberger's question as to when the transportation strategy is going to be in place. I am a bit concerned about the response from the Minister as to our timelines. I wonder if the Minister can confirm that we will have a transportation strategy to debate in this House before June session's close, and that we will have a strategy in place before this government's term expires? Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. As I stated earlier, I am hopeful that I can have something which I can bring forward to my Cabinet colleagues and then flow from there to the committees early in our new fiscal year. If everything works according to plan we would be hopeful to present something, at least so we can have, if not this Assembly, then the next Assembly be able to act on the work we have done to date; but, until we actually move forward and I get the options through Cabinet, I could not give a firm date as to when we would like to see this happen.

I am hopeful that in the very early new year of this fiscal year that I would be able to come forward to my Cabinet colleagues and from there it would flow out to the committees and try and establish and put something in place for the future government especially. Thank you.

Question 13-13(7): Revenue Canada Forms To Seniors
Item 6: Oral Questions

Jane Groenewegen Hay River

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, my question is now for the Minister of Education, Culture and Employment. It would seem that a number of seniors in my constituency, and I am sure in others, recently received from this government a form called a T5-007, indicating that they had received income in a previous year for which they would have to now report to Revenue Canada. This caused some concern to these seniors because, of course, this would affect a readjustment of income in previous years, and I know that for a senior this is particularly

troublesome. I know when I get an envelope that has got Revenue Canada at the top, I do not particularly look forward to seeing what is inside. Mr. Speaker, could the Minister please explain for us what the purpose of these T5-007s is?

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. This would probably be a better question for the Minister of Finance who may know more about tax forms than I do. Mr. Speaker, I was unaware of this situation until the Member questioned me about it just before session today, and I have not been able to get a response yet, so I will have to take the question as notice.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. My question, again, is directed to the Minister responsible for the Power Corporation in reference to the fuel resupply contract that was issued for various locations in Nunavut. Would the Minister tell us what type of tender or RFP or RFQ, whatever it was, which was it that was awarded? Thank you.
