Shane Thompson Nahendeh

This year is a new initiative, one-time assistance to provide compensation to people who have had unprecedented damage to property and equipment. However, in saying that, when flooding situations occur in the springtime, we will look at it on a case-by-case basis, and we encourage the Members to get people to reach out to our regional offices to bring forth their concerns.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I am not sure if the Minister will be able to answer this one, but if he can provide the information, can the Minister provide what the department has allocated for this program for the past two fiscal years, how many applicants they have had, and what was paid out? Thank you.

I wish I could do that for the Member, and I really hate to make a commitment to have to come back to the Member with that information. For that detail, I will reach out to the department, and we will get it to her in a timely manner. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. The practice of using power-limiting devices in the Northwest Territories: under Section 74(1) of the Public Utilities Act, any public utilities operating in the Northwest Territories must provide any information requested by the Public Utilities Board. In light of the current practice of using power-limiting devices by utilities and power distributors operating in the Northwest Territories, I submit the following questions to the Minister responsible for the Public Utilities Board:

  1. What is the current number of power limiters installed in residential homes across the Northwest Territories by the Northwest Territories Power Corporation, broken down by region and community;
  2. What is the number of power limiters installed by the Northwest Territories Power Corporation since resumption of the use of limiters announced in the press release of October 21, 2020;
  3. What is the current number of power limiters installed in residential homes across the Northwest Territories by Northland Utilities (NWT) Limited (an ATCO Company), broken down by region and by community; and
