YELLOWKNIFE (October 20, 2015) – On behalf of the residents of the Northwest Territories, I would like to congratulate Prime Minister designate Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party of Canada on their election victory last night. We are confident that Mr. Trudeau’s background and many travels in the North will help him bring a good understanding of the issues that matter to Northerners as he forms his government and begins to implement his vision for our country.

Mr. Speaker, we often talk about the people of the NWT as being our greatest resource. I think it’s fair to say that our Government of the Northwest Territories’ public service is made up of many of those remarkable people who dedicate themselves to public service. Today I would like to acknowledge one of those public servants who has dedicated 25 years to this Government and the people of the NWT.

Thank you to everyone for attending today’s press conference.

The high cost of energy continues to be one of the most significant challenges faced by the people of the Northwest Territories and our government. Our government is committed to addressing that cost where and how it can, including taking steps to ensure residents are shielded from increases due to factors outside our control, like weather conditions. Around the world, governments are dealing with costs brought on by climate change, and our territory is not alone in facing situations like this.

Good Morning distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen.

It is a pleasure to be here today to speak to you about the Northwest Territories, land of the midnight sun, and spectacular Aurora borealis. A land with massive oil and gas reserves in a wilderness without apparent end.  A land that holds great significance for the rest of Canada; not only by responsibly developing the enormous resources but by embodying that very place your conference is about, the Arctic Border.
