Question 279-19(2): Home Internet Connectivity  Marsi cho, Mr. Speaker.

Home Internet Connectivity  Marsi cho, Mr. Speaker. Today, I want to talk about the cost of the speed of home Internet and home Internet rates in the NWT, and how we're all connected during this pandemic.

Consideration In Committee Of The Whole Of Bills And Other Matters  Thank you, Madam Chair, and thank you for that response. I guess that leads me to another question.

Consideration In Committee Of The Whole Of Bills And Other Matters  Marsi cho, Madam Chair. When I first heard of this bill, the first thing that popped into my mind was you should always hope for the best and plan for the worst.
