Statements in the House

Question 423-14(6): Main Street Paving Program October 9th, 2003

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I'd like to ask the Minister if he can make sure that if it's not possible during the life of his Assembly, that he put it in the transition document for the next Assembly?

Question 423-14(6): Main Street Paving Program October 9th, 2003

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I'd like to ask the Minister, since just discovering that Rae and Edzo are not the same community, maybe he could look at extra funding and from now on he can give direction to his department to see it in that way. Thank you.

Question 423-14(6): Main Street Paving Program October 9th, 2003

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. My question is for the Honourable Vince Steen, Minister of MACA. I'd like to continue my line of questioning on main street paving. I'd like to ask the Minister, as he considered Rae and Edzo the same community, maybe now that he knows they aren't the same community he'll put more funding in to chip seal the main street of the other community. Thank you.

Question 422-14(6): Main Street Paving Program October 9th, 2003

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I'd like to ask the Minister when they were considering Rae-Edzo, did they consider that there were two communities and both had main streets? Thank you.

Question 422-14(6): Main Street Paving Program October 9th, 2003

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I'd like to ask the Minister if every community was going to be treated equally when they did the preparation and upgrading before they chip sealed. Were all communities being considered equally? Thank you.

Question 422-14(6): Main Street Paving Program October 9th, 2003

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I'd like to ask the Minister if he can give us the amounts that each community is receiving for the dust control program? Thank you.

Question 422-14(6): Main Street Paving Program October 9th, 2003

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. My question is for the Honourable Vince Steen, the Minister of MACA. I'd like to ask the Minister, when the main street paving and dust control was done in the non-tax-based communities, how did the department decide which communities got what in the amount of dollars and the chip sealing? Thank you.

Question 417-14(6): NWT Housing Corporation Policies On Rental Arrears October 9th, 2003

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. We also know that sometimes when housing is unable to take records of the income of the people, so what they use is their last year's tax deductions and statements and are assessing people on it. Sometimes people are not employed in the current year, so sometimes they accumulate arrears although it's not a fault of theirs. Could the Minister look at finding new ways of assessing income? Thank you.

Question 417-14(6): NWT Housing Corporation Policies On Rental Arrears October 9th, 2003

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. One of the other things that affect how people qualify for their program is this 25 percent of the gross wages, and everyone knows that that's a substantial amount of money that they have to put forward. I would like to ask the Minister if he could make sure that this is one of the things that he does and puts it forward so it can be dealt with. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Question 417-14(6): NWT Housing Corporation Policies On Rental Arrears October 9th, 2003

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. As everyone knows, the life of this Assembly is dwindling and it's going to be coming to an end pretty soon. I would like to ask the Minister if he's going on the new initiative that he can make sure that it's in the transition document for the next Assembly when they come into existence? Thank you, Mr. Speaker.
