Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, with the input that we have acquired and the review that we are going through, we have to look at the policy and if the policy has to change then we will have to further consult other Members. I am sure there are opposing views to what the honourable Member is requesting here and that it is a matter that has to be reviewed by this House. As such we will have to bring forward any changes to that policy when it is done.

Question 20-13(7): Gasoline Quality In Gjoa Haven
Item 6: Oral Questions

John Ningark Natilikmiot

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. My question is directed to the Minister of Public Works and Services. Mr. Speaker, I have received a letter from the Mayor of Gjoa Haven and copies of other letters from other government officials. The letter was written to the government official in Cambridge Bay by the Mayor of Gjoa Haven. The letter that I received is in regards to bad, contaminated or poor quality gasoline in Gjoa Haven supplied by this government. I do not need to go into detail because the Minister has received the same letter. My question to the honourable Minister is, Mr. Speaker, what has the government done to deal with this matter at this point in time? Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, in response, the department has requested some samples of spark plugs and other equipment from the machines that were affected so that they could send them out for sampling to see indeed if it is gas quality that is the problem. The department has sent a petroleum products officer into the community to test the gas itself and the initial reports back are that the gas quality is the same as in other communities around the area. There needs to be further work done in the area to see it there are other possible causes to what is happening in this community. Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. The department has monitored the quality of the gas in the community. It is the same gas that is delivered to a number of other communities along that area and to date the reports have come back that the gas quality itself is good, as I stated earlier. We are looking at other things. There has been a request made to those concerned to supply some additional information and I know that, for example, as I have said earlier, spark plugs and so on that were affected were sent to a laboratory in the south to see what the potential causes could be and when we have those responses we will be getting back to the Member and the community affected. Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, my question is to the Minister of Health and Social Services, regarding his statement that he made yesterday. It was regarding the consideration and review of health and social services in the new Western Territory. Mr. Speaker, I would like to ask the Minister exactly how are they going to be looking at this. Is it going to be a system-wide review of all health and social services delivered in the Western Territory; also, considering that there will be some terms of reference? In regard to the independence of such a public review where I have tabled petitions in this House asking for an inquiry, I would like to ask the Minister exactly how soon does he see this process happening and what is the avenue that it is going to take?
