Thank you for that introduction, and for the invitation to join you here today.

Chiefs, colleagues, ladies and gentlemen, let me begin by saying what a pleasure it is to have this opportunity to promote the economic potential of the NWT.  It is something I get to do a lot of – and it is one of my favourite things to do.

Yellowknife embodies, in my mind, some of the greatest attributes of living, working and investing in Canada’s Northwest Territories.
