Statements in the House

Item 19: Consideration In Committee Of The Whole Of Bills And Other Matters July 29th, 1999

Thank you, Mr. Chairman. I would just like to thank the people of the western Northwest Territories for their input into the public review of Bill 15 that the Standing Committee on Government Operations undertook. The recommendations of our committee should be given due consideration. The recommendations are, through our committee, from the people of the Northwest Territories. At this time in our history we have a very fragile political working relationship with all parties in the Northwest Territories. We should be looking very seriously at ways of the new western territory moving ahead and doing that in unity. I know the next item on this agenda is the government's introduction of their Bill 15. I know that the government has listened to what we have had to say. I know that our government has an opportunity, through the introduction of their bill, to consider some of the recommendations that we put forward as a committee. So I look forward to hearing what they have to say. With that, I thank you, Mr. Chairman.

Question 251-13(7): Consultation On Correctional Facilities July 29th, 1999

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I just made it.

Question 251-13(7): Consultation On Correctional Facilities July 29th, 1999

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, for the last few days, I continue to hear the rhetoric out of this Minister referring to previous decisions made by myself as the Premier. I ask you to rule on that because he is talking about previous positions I had. He also mentions and leads the public to believe that he never sat on the same Cabinet. Now, I know he used to hide behind me in my decisions, but he is standing on his own two feet, and he has to get out there one of these days and do that. He should take possession of his decisions, Mr. Speaker. But also I would appreciate it if he quits referring to what I did previously.

Question 250-13(7): Government Response To Aboriginal Request July 29th, 1999

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. On quoting out of Hansard, March 24, 1999, Minister's statements, that statement on behalf of the Government of the Northwest Territories, the Premier then says, "We as elected representatives, have a responsibility, we have a responsibility to find a solution to this very difficult, diverse issue." Does the Premier and his government, do you still have a responsibility? Is this statement still true today?
