Commissioner Of The Northwest Territories Hon. Margaret Thom

Mr. Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly, good afternoon. I have been very busy for the past month or so attending various events to honour the achievements of Northerners. This includes the 50th anniversary of Aurora College, high school graduations, three Aurora College convocations, and the annual Territorial Showcase.

The Territorial Showcase involves northern students only, and I was very, very impressed with all the history projects that our young people presented at the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre, such a beautiful place to hold such an event. I would like to congratulate Madame Monique Marinier for her leadership and hard work to establish the Territorial Showcase, and I hope very much that it will continue even though she is retiring very soon.

I was also invited to present the Governor General Corrections Exemplary Service Awards to several NWT recipients, and I was so proud to take part in that event. Not to mention also, this morning, there was another beautiful ceremony that happened with the St. John's investitures this morning.

Colleagues, I would like to extend the appreciation of this House to the Commissioner, Margaret M. Thom. It is always a pleasure to have her in the House.

Over the past three weeks, we have achieved a great deal, and I want to thank each and every Member for your hard work and dedication to this House and to all the people whom we represent.

I would also like to take this opportunity to recognize the honourable Member for Tu Nedhe-Wiilideh, who has announced he will not be seeking re-election this fall.

The member for Tu Nedhe-Wiilideh has served many official roles in this Assembly since 2007, including chair of the Standing Committee on Social Programs in the 16th Assembly, Minister of Transportation, Health and Social Services, Human Resources, Seniors and Persons With Disabilities in the 17th Assembly, and the chair of the Standing Committee on Priorities and Planning in this Assembly. He has served as the Member for both Tu Nedhe and Tu Nedhe-Wiilideh.

Beyond these official roles, the Member has shared his wisdom and leadership with all Members and has served as a mentor to many of us. Throughout the years, he has been and remains a valued member of this institution, and he will be missed.

Colleagues, please join me in thanking the Member for Tu Nedhe-Wiilideh for his dedication to this House and wish him all the best as he prepares for life after public office.

---Applause

I also have to thank the interpreters and Pages who have been with us for these past three weeks. Your assistance and contributions to our work are appreciated. It is a pleasure to share this Chamber with you all.

We know there is still plenty of work to be done in this Assembly. While it may be a short summer as a result of this work, I wish you all a happy National Aboriginal Day and Canada Day, and encourage you to take the time to enjoy our land and waters safely.

Madam Clerk, orders of the day.
