Ministers' Statements and Speeches

Today we remember a targeted attack on women at l’École Polytechnique de Montréal. This was a horrific act of violence, and we must all work together to ensure that this never happens again. We are all responsible for making our homes and communities safer by protecting victims and their children, holding violent people accountable for their actions, and providing opportunities for change.

Ministers' Statements and Speeches

(January 18, 2013) - I was saddened to hear of Dr. Robertson’s passing on Monday, January 14, 2013. It was during his ten years as Commissioner that the current borders of the Northwest Territories were recommended, and our strong, unified territory owes its beginnings to his leadership. He served with the first, second, third and fourth Legislative Councils of the Northwest Territories, the forerunners of our fully elected Legislative Assemblies.
