Thank you, Mr. Speaker. This ruling was done very recently and last week on Thursday and Friday the Western Caucus was debating and discussing it. The position of the government is that there is going to be a notice of motion introduced in the House, Bill 15, An Act to Amend the Legislative Assembly and Executive Council Act. So there is notice to move in that direction today, but really the whole decision really rests with the Western Caucus, and as a Cabinet we still have to sit down and discuss this whole move and at this present time we have not done that yet. However, as I said, it is really upon the direction of the Western Caucus that we will move forward. Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. As I am sure the Premier is aware, we are on a very tight time frame. We have 15 days left before some actions will take place as a result of this court ruling. Am I to understand that it is the position of the government that they will comply with this court order? Thank you.

Thank you, the legislation then, Mr. Speaker, that the Premier refers to then would be legislation that would bring this Legislature into compliance with the judge's order? Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, my question will be directed to my Nunavut colleague, Manitok Thompson, who is still responsible for MACA. I represent three communities which are not tax-based and there has been assessment through the homeowners, although there were no improvements in their lots, there is significant increase in the lease. I would like to know why there is a significant increase on the lease? Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. We did a land reform initiative which authorized the communities now to set their own rates on land leases. Under the Nunavut Land Claims, the authority has been given to the hamlets to set their own land leases, so it is now up to the communities to decide how much money they have to collect from the property owners of their communities.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, I would like to know whether the hamlets or homeowners were consulted before the leases increased? Thank you.
