Mr. Speaker, as a result of devolution, much of the lands and waters of the Northwest Territories are now the responsibility of our government.  We had prepared for this eventually by getting our policy house in order through the development of the NWT Water Stewardship Strategy and its Action Plan.  We built these documents collaboratively with our partners, in particular the Aboriginal governments of the NWT. They represent a huge success, and they demonstrate how innovative we are here in the North.

I am very pleased to report another critically important success.
