Thank you, Mr. Speaker, and I would also like to recognize Ms. Sheila Cook, who earlier today was inducted into the NWT Education Hall of Fame and received an award. It goes on her mantle with some of the other awards she's won including Citizen of the Year, and so on. She's always contributing to the community, and I just wanted to let her know how much she's appreciated, and welcome her to the gallery. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.
