Statements in the House

Item 19: Consideration In Committee Of The Whole Of Bills And Other Matters July 30th, 1999

Thank you, Madam Chairperson. What happens if these units are not sold?

Item 19: Consideration In Committee Of The Whole Of Bills And Other Matters July 30th, 1999

Could the Minister indicate what it is for then?

Item 19: Consideration In Committee Of The Whole Of Bills And Other Matters July 30th, 1999

Thank you, Madam Chairperson. Is the $625,000 in any way tied to those nine units, four going into Norman Wells and five going into Fort Simpson?

Item 19: Consideration In Committee Of The Whole Of Bills And Other Matters July 30th, 1999

Madam Chairperson, I would like to make a motion to extend hours at least long enough to conclude consideration of the bill. Thank you.

Item 19: Consideration In Committee Of The Whole Of Bills And Other Matters July 30th, 1999

Thank you, Madam Chairperson. I am aware that this is money that is currently being spent, but it is also increasing the budgets of those two respective communities. That is why I want to know if the communities in my constituency will also be lucky enough to get a comparable increase to their budgets.

Item 19: Consideration In Committee Of The Whole Of Bills And Other Matters July 30th, 1999

Thank you, Madam Chairperson. I am not exactly sure how much this works out to for each of the two communities, but is it possible for Dettah and N'dilo to receive equal increases in their budget to their housing authority?

Item 19: Consideration In Committee Of The Whole Of Bills And Other Matters July 30th, 1999

Thank you, Madam Chairperson. Could I ask for clarification? How long is this money for? How long a period is it to be used over? Is it eight months, a whole year, how long?

Item 19: Consideration In Committee Of The Whole Of Bills And Other Matters July 30th, 1999

Thank you, Madam Chairperson. I would just like to thank the Minister for his forthright replies. Thank you.

Item 19: Consideration In Committee Of The Whole Of Bills And Other Matters July 30th, 1999

Thank you, Madam Chairperson. There would have to be policy considerations and there would have to be representation from the nurses, as well as the boards. Would one option be that the nurses have their own union separate and work for the boards?

Item 19: Consideration In Committee Of The Whole Of Bills And Other Matters July 30th, 1999

Thank you, Mr. Chairman. Would this have be all of the health boards? Would they all have to agree to this or could one specific board and their nurses do this? For instance, could the Stanton Hospital here do that alone if the nurses and the board desire to do something?
