Committee Motion 116-18(3): Concurrence of Tabled Document 388-18(3): Supplementary Estimates (Infrastructure Expenditures), No. 1, 2019-2020, Carried Consideration In Committee Of The Whole Of Bills And Other Matters
Thank you, Mr. Chair. When I sat down with all three of these governments to discuss the potential Taltson Hydro project, I stated quite clearly at that time that this is looking forward on how we can do the expansion to bring economic opportunities, not to just them but to the whole Northwest Territories. Through those conversations, they knew it was quite clear. They made it quite clear to me that this would not be a conversation about what previously happened with the Taltson expansion back in the 1960s. In fact, some of the chiefs even asked me, "You need to come to the communities and help me explain this to the residents, to quantify that this project is clearly on a moving-forward basis." Thank you, Mr. Chair.
