Yukon Surface Rights Board Act  Mr. Speaker, my Bloc colleague from Saint-Jean who just spoke in my view painted some scenarios essentially that do not exist and painted scenes of conflict where it does not exist.

Yukon Surface Rights Board Act  Mr. Speaker, last week in this House the minister of Indian affairs indicated that the Reform caucus had never supported an aboriginal bill in this House.

Yukon Surface Rights Board Act  Mr. Speaker, in the opening comments by the member who just spoke there were some statements regarding the Reform's concerns about the ability of the Council of Yukon Indians to designate its representatives to this board.

Yukon Surface Rights Board Act  Mr. Speaker, I will resume from where I was interrupted. In addition to the $8.3 billion that I was speaking about there are another 460 specific native claims and lawsuits that currently have no dollar figure and do not form part of the known liabilities.

Royal Commission On Aboriginal Peoples  Mr. Speaker, the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples set up four years ago is already substantially over budget and over deadline. Again it is extending its deadline. This $58 million exercise has obviously lost focus. Will the minister of Indian affairs instruct this commiss

Department Of Industry Act  Mr. Speaker, I apologize. I would like to make a couple of other references to the way these priorities have been placed in jeopardy.
