Mr. Speaker, what we are trying to do is give the authority to the Yukon. We are not talking about James Bay or anything else right now. We are talking about the Yukon, where the federal minister gave the authority to the territorial ministers to do what was necessary so that they could develop their resources.
To stop them from developing their resources, with all the environmental processes in place, without some element of certainty, leaves the process open for the “forever neverendum”. Nothing gets done. Investors leave.
My goal tonight is to speak to the government's undoing of everything that was promoting economic development in the Yukon previously.
