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.

Mr. Speaker, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission will be holding its closing events from May 31 to June 3 in Ottawa. This is time to reflect and I would like to express my appreciation for the great work accomplished by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

The work that the Truth and Reconciliation Commission has done in the Northwest Territories and across Canada has been a critical step in the healing process for people suffering from the abuse and trauma of residential schools.


Mr. Speaker, the Government of the Northwest Territories is committed to a diversified economy that provides all communities and regions with opportunities and choices. Having an affordable, reliable and secure energy system that takes into account economic development and impacts to the environment is central to this goal.
