Oh, absolutely. In Yukon we're approaching an energy cliff, in a lot of ways. A lot of our energy is coming from hydro. In Whitehorse, with our hydro dam project, upwards of 95% of our power is from hydro. We do need to take into consideration, if any of these mining interests come to fruition, that we'll be in a situation where we'll have to make some major decisions as to how to supply our energy.
One of the benefits of self-governing agreements with the first nations is the ability to provide power for local communities on their own. We've had opportunities for windmills for Kluane First Nation. Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in in Dawson is taking a look at the “Yukon ditch”, which is such a fantastic provider of power it powered the Klondike gold rush into the dredging era. There's a massive amount of power being created.
Working with the first nations economic development branch, challenging our independent power production policies, and partnering in infrastructure building with Ottawa as they take a look at the national consideration in infrastructure—these are key questions and key conversations that we must have. I've had these conversations with the Minister of Infrastructure, Minister Sohi. To have that government-to-government-to-government conversation, where we're all at the table together, makes sense to the ministers, and I believe it expedites the conversations as well.
We're looking to remove power from our debt cap as well. The federal government will definitely have to help us out with that very important consideration.
