That is good news. I am pleased to hear that there has been this advance. Can the Minister at all elaborate on what he means by "accepted a proposal"? What kind of a proposal, and from whom?

I thank the Member opposite again for her question. I do know that the stakeholder and public engagement is scheduled for June 11th and 12th in Yellowknife, and advocates have been invited to attend from across the NWT. That is the next step that we are taking very shortly.

Thank you to the Minister. I wonder if the Minister could tell us about the steps following on from the public engagement. Is it likely that this third-party reporting will be in place in the life of this Assembly? Thank you.

Of course, we don't have much time left, so I am not certain whether I can make that commitment, but as I say, we are looking forward to this public engagement, which will give us direction to take next steps, I am sure. Thank you.
