Transport committee  I'll respond to that one. Thank you, Mr. Tootoo. Yes, Nunavut has a small population but huge potential economically. The mineral sector is probably the brightest star in that constellation. We believe that our project would, at minimum, trigger the development of what is a worl

Transport committee  In terms of our project and how it lines up with the various criteria, it lines up very well. Fundamentally, the Grays Bay road and port project is expressly a trade corridor project. It meets all the criteria in the sense that it creates new opportunities to diversify an economi

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  To be honest, ten times the amount of money would be required. I'll give an example.

Finance committee  I just wanted to build on what Colette had mentioned earlier that a motion from the Kitikmeot Chamber of Commerce had been ratified and brought up at the Canadian Chamber of Commerce AGM in Thunder Bay late last month. That was endorsed by the other northern chamber of commerce t

Finance committee  It also improves the quality of services that already exist there. Some of you may be aware that there was a scrubbed resupply barge that was coming from the west and going up to the Mackenzie River. Due to the ice situation in the Beaufort, the barge is not able to reach Cambrid

Finance committee  The primary economic rationale for this project is that it would lower the cost to access, explore and develop the mineral-rich Slave geological province. It will lower the cost of developing known projects and increase the likelihood of finding significant new mineral deposits.
