(Translation) Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I do not have much to say but I would like to say farewell to my colleagues as well as to thank them for having been their colleague. Even though I might forget the names of some of the people, it is not that I do not wish them the best whether you are aboriginal, Inuk, Indian, woman or a man, all of you, I would like to thank all of you and I will say farewell to you. Also, our clerk, Mr. Hamilton, I called Davidee. We owe Mr. Hamilton, I have read his letters as well as the songs that he wrote and he was a very capable leader. He was even able to hit Goliath, a giant, that is the story we have heard many times and he is just as capable as that David and I would like to thank him very much.
Also our colleagues too, I would like to thank them as well, their wives, husbands and children. Their support is the only reason we are capable of doing our jobs and also our constituents as well as my children and my wife have supported me. That is the reason why I am capable of holding this position so I would like to thank them, as well, if I can remember correctly, I would like to thank all the people that we have worked with, Joe Arlooktook, Ipeelie Kilabuk, former MLAs James Arreak, as well as Moses Appaqaq and all those other MLAs that were from the western Arctic. I remember especially John Steen, Vince Steen's older brother, I remember him well. Also I would like to say farewell to him. Any time we will be able to meet one another in the future, although it is difficult to predict the future, I can say, I am pleased at times and I am sort of sad at times that we have to deal with some difficult issues for our constituencies.
Also our relatives who have died during the years we have been meeting here in the Legislative Assembly in our absence. Also their relatives, there are many things that we are capable of handling, with the help of God, as I have read in the Bible, I would like to thank the people who were capable of dealing with their situation and being able to deal with their grieving and been able to survive through the hardships.
I would like to also thank everyone from the western Arctic who has welcomed us with open hands. I would also like to say that it is very difficult to work on the division procedures, we had to travel through our communities to get their support for the division of the Northwest Territories. Now it is going to be a reality soon. I would like to thank everyone from the Northwest Territories as well. Thank you.
