Commissioner Ms. Thom

Mr. Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly, good afternoon. [English translation not provided.]

Thank you. I am honoured to be in this special place with all of you. It is great to see all of you and to thank you for your hard work to better the lives of the Northerners.

With deep respect, I would like to acknowledge and honour the sacred land and traditional territory of Chief Drygeese and to be forever grateful for allowing us to do our work in this territory.

As we enjoy these warmer months, I would like to wish each of you a safe, healthy, and 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.

Encourage and remind your families, friends, and people in your communities to be safe out on the land and to wear personal flotation 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 your work in your constituencies. Now, as Commissioner of the Northwest Territories, I am pleased to assent to the following bills:

  • Bill 5, An Act to Amend the Summary Conviction Procedures Act
  • Bill 6, Cannabis Legalization and Regulation Implementation Act
  • Bill 19, An Act to Amend the Revolving Funds Act
  • Bill 22, Supplementary Appropriation Act (Infrastructure Expenditures), No. 2, 2018-2019
  • Bill 23, Supplementary Appropriation Act (Operations Expenditures), No. 2, 2018-2019
  • Bill 21, An Act to Amend the Northwest Territories Business Development and Investment Corporation Act

Mahsi Cho. Thank you. Quyanainni. Merci Beaucoup. Koana.

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

Colleagues, I would like to extend the appreciation of this House to the Commissioner, Margaret M. Thom. It was a pleasure to have you in the House here today.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of the Pages throughout the past week and a half who have served during this session. Our youth are our future, we have always stated that, our greatest resources. It is an honour to share this Chamber with you, all of you.

Finally, I would like to thank all the interpreters who have been with us throughout this session. Some days were long, but they were here with us: Mary Rose Sundberg, Sarah Cleary, Tom Unka, and Annie Goose. Our official languages are an important part of our heritage, our culture, and our identity. The hard work and dedication of interpreters make it possible for us to share, use, and celebrate our official languages on a daily basis during our session. To our interpreters, thank you all for the invaluable services that you provide each and every day. Masi cho for that.

Colleagues, this was a short sitting, but it was not an easy one. During the past two weeks, you have achieved a great deal, and you should feel proud of the week you have done to do so. The topics we have considered have been very challenging. The days have been long. We have not always been able to see eye-to-eye.

Although we did not always agree, we were able to work together with honour and dignity as we worked to serve our constituencies, the Northwest Territories, and the people across the board. I commend all Members of this House for their dedication and hard work. I would also like to wish you safe travels as you return to your constituencies. Masi, colleagues.

As we prepare for another beautiful northern summer, I'd like to remind you to get out and experience all that this territory has to offer. We are fortunate to live in one of the most beautiful regions of the country and we should not take that for granted at all. Whether you are out on the land, on the water, visiting one of our parks, or enjoying one of our summer festivals or summer assemblies, please do so safely and enjoy what this territory has to offer.

Colleagues, this House, as you know, will not sit again until October. However, I know that all of you will be busy with your constituencies, with committee work, and the ongoing business of this government. Also, there are a great deal of commitments that have been made by this government. Most importantly, spend time with your family, with your friends, with your community members, with your constituencies.

Our profession often requires us to work long hours, as we witnessed yesterday and the days before, and spend days and weeks away from the people who matter most to all of us. Please enjoy the summer recess, and make time for those who give so much so we can serve those who have elected us. With that in mind, I would just like to say masi for your invaluable contribution.

Mr. Clerk, item 23, orders of the day.
