Statements in the House

Question 270-12(7): Use Of Tabled Document 51-12(7) To Inform Tenants Of Rent Adjustments March 8th, 1995

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I don't know if the Minister is evading my question but I'm asking whether the Housing Corporation provided forms that the housing associations would use to assess the rents of tenants. I wonder if that was done. I believe, Mr. Speaker, that my question has not been answered. Thank you.

Question 270-12(7): Use Of Tabled Document 51-12(7) To Inform Tenants Of Rent Adjustments March 8th, 1995

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Was that form provided by the Housing Corporation to assist the housing associations? Thank you.

Question 270-12(7): Use Of Tabled Document 51-12(7) To Inform Tenants Of Rent Adjustments March 8th, 1995

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I would like to ask the Minister responsible for the Housing Corporation, did the Housing Corporation develop a form for the housing associations in the communities to use to assess the income of the household which will affect the rent scale? Thank you.

Question 270-12(7): Use Of Tabled Document 51-12(7) To Inform Tenants Of Rent Adjustments March 8th, 1995

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I would like to refer to Tabled Document 51-12(7). I would like to ask the Minister of Housing if that tabled document was used as a form to inform housing association tenants about rent adjustments due to take place April 1, 1995. Thank you.

Question 268-12(7): Tabling Unsigned Documents In The House March 7th, 1995

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. The tabled document that was tabled today by the Member for Iqaluit...

Question 258-12(7): Status Of Financial Assistance For Glo Wages March 7th, 1995

Thank you. I know the information came to us that the GLOs were given an alternative, either to take half-time pay or resign from the government if they do not sign the government offer. Is it also true that the GLOs in the Baffin, none of them have accepted a half-time position? Thank you.

Question 258-12(7): Status Of Financial Assistance For Glo Wages March 7th, 1995

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I have a question for the government with regard to a decision to downgrade GLO positions in my constituency from full-time to half-time. Earlier this session, the Premier announced that she would work with the other departments to see whether ways could be found to continue to support these valuable Inuit employees in the isolated communities by getting other departments who are using the GLO services to help pay for their wages. I wonder, Mr. Speaker, if the government could tell me what the status is of the government's efforts to get other departments to assist with GLO wages. Thank you.

Committee Motion 32-12(7): To Adopt Recommendation 9, Carried March 6th, 1995

Thank you, Mr. Chairman. I move that we report progress.

Question 248-12(7): Protection From Rental Increases For Public Housing Tenants March 6th, 1995

Mr. Speaker, I would like to ask the Minister of Housing a question again. I checked the Residential Tenancies Act and the Minister may be correct. Section 47(6) states that this section does not apply to subsidized public housing. Then my question is, Mr. Speaker, if the tenants of public housing are not protected by this act, how are they protected in terms of landlords raising rents? Thank you.

Question 244-12(7): Application Of Residential Tenancies Act To Nwthc March 6th, 1995

Supplementary, Mr. Speaker. If I recall correctly, when we were dealing with staff housing units, before staff rents were increased to economic levels, staff rents were social rents. I wonder, Mr. Speaker, if there is any difference between social housing rates now and staff housing rates which were applied to government employees back then. Why did the government have to give tenants three months' notice then? Why did they have to conform to section 47(2) two years ago? Why doesn't it apply in this case?
