Deputy Commissioner (Mr. Kisoun)

Good morning. Please be seated. Mr. Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly, good afternoon. Quyanainni, qaiqqafi, and shiik kut hai cho. I would like to congratulate all the recipients of various award presentations held here at the legislative assembly building this week. The Order of the Northwest Territories on Tuesday, the Premier's Award, and the Institute of Public Administration of Canada Northwest Territories branch on Wednesday, and the Education Hall of Fame just yesterday.

It is important that the government takes the time to recognize and honour the deserving and hard-working Northwest Territories residents with these awards, and I am glad that I could be here to take part. As we enjoy the summer months, I would like to wish each of you a safe, healthy, and a happy summer as you take your break and enjoy quality time with your families. Please travel safely on the land, on our waters, in the air, and on our highways as you continue working for the betterment of all Northerners.

Please encourage and remind your families, friends, and people in your communities to be safe out on the land and to wear personal floatation devices, or PFDs, when travelling by boat on our waterways. As this sitting comes to a close, I wish the Members of this House good health and happiness as you enjoy the summer and continue to work in your constituencies.

Now, as Deputy Commissioner of the Northwest Territories, I am pleased to assent the following bills:

● Bill 15: An Act to Amend the Tobacco Tax Act

● Bill 16: An Act to Amend the Education Act

● Bill 17: An Act to Amend the Income Tax Act

● Bill 18: An Act to Amend the Health and Social Services Professions Act

● Bill 26: An Act to Amend the Revolving Funds Act, No. 2

● Bill 31: Supplementary Appropriation Act (Operations Expenditures), No. 2, 2017-2018

● Bill 32: Supplementary Appropriation Act (Infrastructure Expenditures), No. 2, 2017-2018

Thank you, hai cho, quyanainni, merci beaucoup, mahsi cho, koana. May God bless you.

Please be seated. Members, [English translation not provided.]

Colleagues, I'd just like to say it's been a short session but we've done a lot of work. We completed a lot of assignments that were before us. The summer is fast approaching, and a lot of you will be going back to your region, your community, your riding. I just want to release a message to be safe out there, and the work does not end here. We still have a lot of work ahead of us.

I'd just like to say thank you for your respect, your dignity in this House, and your cooperation. We've done a lot of work in that respect, so I'd just like to say masi. Masi, and keep safe over the summer. Masi cho. Mr. Clerk, orders of the day.
