Thank you, Mr. Speaker. In regard to the different alcohol and drug organizations that are in place, I believe most of the organizations are based in the Yellowknife area. I would like to ask the Minister, what is he doing to ensure the regions and the outlining areas of Yellowknife also have an opportunity to deliver these programs and services rather than just basically centralizing this program. I would like to know, is there a strategy in place that the government is doing to ensure that the regions and groups such as the Tl'oondih Healing Society will have an opportunity to operate in the future without seeing all the programs delivered out of Yellowknife?

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I would like to assure the Member that the department is in no way intending to centralize the services that are out there. There have been some concerns raised lately as to an aspect of one of the drug and alcohol treatment facilities that operate in the territories. There has been ongoing work to try and see what we can do as a department to reprofile to some degree what we are doing right now. As I stated yesterday, the ministerial forum that we are developing will look at how we deliver health services and drugs and alcohol is one of those in there, to ensure that all residents will continue to receive support from this government. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I would like to ask the Minister if he can get me the information, in regard to seeing exactly how much money has been allocated to Tl'oondih Healing Society in the last three years? If he can have that information available to me as soon as possible.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, my question is to Minister Kakfwi on the Labour Standards Act. I made a statement earlier today on it, and I spoke about the plight to get much needed changes to the Labour Standards Act. My questions are to the Minister and the first question, Mr. Speaker, is could the Minister of Justice advise this House when legislative changes to the Labour Standards Act will be presented to the Members of this Assembly? Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I would hope to be able to go to Cabinet with a legislative amendment proposal within the next month or so in time, perhaps to have it dealt with if Cabinet agrees to have it dealt with, for the June session. That is the tentative schedule that I have in mind. Thank you.
