Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I thank the Premier for his statement before the committee. The territories, and especially the relationship the federal government has with them, are an extremely important matter.
In a conversation I had this morning with Mr. McLeod, the Premier of the Northwest Territories, my first comments were about the evolution and independence of their legislative assembly. He felt that their powers over territories, resources, fisheries and environmental issues were priorities. I'll put the same question to you. From the Yukon's perspective, in the context of your objective to gain more independence and powers from the federal government, what would your priorities be?
