Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Yesterday I covered the good, the bad and the ugly. Today I want to take this last opportunity to speak to the House and use the prerogative that comes with my age to provide some advice to the Members of the 18th Assembly.
This Assembly has accomplished a lot, in spite of my negative comments yesterday. Work has been done, reports have been written, action plans developed, and I don’t want that work to get lost, so I will again subject the House to my views about what the 18th Assembly needs to follow up on.
• First – and these are in no order of importance – the promised junior kindergarten review report and the recommendations that may come with it.
• The promise of an energy efficiency act.
• Universal daycare report and actions that should be taken with that.
• The Aurora College report and actions that are contained therein.
• Dechinta and College Nordique requests for inclusion in secondary school legislation.
• Mental Health Act report recommendations and the Mental Health Act regulations.
• Child and Family Services Act review and the recommendations from the Office of the Auditor General regarding the child and family services.
• The Social Issues Committee of Cabinet’s Anti-Poverty Action Plan must not get lost.
• The Our Elders: Our Communities report on seniors’ needs to be followed up on.
• BDIC has had a program review. Were any actions taken on that?
• Hydraulic fracturing regulations consultation. It must continue. It must. There must be consultation.
• Health and Social Services recent quality assurance review and action plan that is apparently coming from that. Make sure it comes.
• The Program Review Office work. Ensure that reviews are received and considered by committee.
• Population Growth Strategy. Monitor the results and keep the government’s feet to the fire on that.
• The Justice Action Plan regarding corrections from the Office of the Auditor General’s report.
• The Education, Renewal and Innovation Strategy and Action Plan.
• The Early Childhood Development Strategy and Action Plan.
• Health and social services authorities amalgamation. Monitor it and make sure it happens correctly.
• The Health Information Act implementation. Monitor it and make sure it happens correctly.
• Ensure there’s a review of royalty regimes and taxation.
• Find a way to get Heritage Fund legislation amendments done.
• ENR and Lands have promised assessments for developments.
I seek unanimous consent to conclude my statement. That’s also not unusual.
