    Premier Bob McLeod – Sessional Statement

    10/17/2014

    Office of The Executive has issued the following news release:

    Premier Bob McLeodMr. Speaker. I would like to welcome all Members back for the resumption of the Fifth Session of the 17th Legislative Assembly.

    Last month, Mr. Speaker, the Government of the Northwest Territories announced that it would cover the expected $20 million dollars in increased operating costs that the Northwest Territories Power Corporation faces due to extremely low water levels in the Snare Hydro System.

    Our government took this extraordinary step because we are serious about addressing the high cost of living people in the Northwest Territories face. Without this decision, the added cost of using diesel to supplement hydro generation on the Snare system would have been paid by electricity users in every community of the Northwest Territories.

    As an Assembly, we share a vision of a strong, environmentally sustainable and prosperous Northwest Territories that provides opportunities for all its residents. Making the Northwest Territories an attractive place to live, work and do business is an essential part of achieving that vision. We cannot achieve that unless we address the high cost of living, and doing business, in our communities. Energy is one of the biggest components of that cost and we have to do what we can to make it more affordable.
