Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, the Western Arctic Leadership Program has been existence for, I believe, almost eight years and was started by my colleague, Mr. Kakfwi, when he was Minister of Education, Culture and Employment. Yes, we do provide some funding to the Western Arctic Leadership Program to the tune of, I believe, $165,000 per year. Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, I believe the number this year is 17. It ranges anywhere from about 14 to 19, depending on how many apply.

Mr. Speaker, could the Minister indicate if the leadership program children are able to take a full range of courses such as you could find perhaps in Yellowknife and perhaps even maybe more than what you could take in Yellowknife or one of the larger centers? Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Why is the Minister condoning a second-rate education for the rest of the community children out there and making it available for only a very select few students, less than 20 per year? Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. My question would be to the Premier, just to finish up the questioning I was asking earlier. As the Premier heard in my Member's statement, it was good to hear that the Premier said that one of the main priorities of this government is to keep what we have and commit to work with the communities. In my Member's statement, Mr. Speaker, I talked about all the knowledge and the tradition and the culture going back in Fort Resolution on the sawmill. I ask the Premier again, is that a priority of this government to work with communities such as Fort Resolution, with the existing labour and the existing equipment in that community, to ensure that that community becomes economically viable and that industry survives in the new Western Territory? Thank you.
