Mr. Rod Thomson (Battleiord-Kindersley):

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development. In view of the possible construction of a Mackenzie highway as envisaged by the Prime Minister, and the large number of skilled workmen which would be required on such a project, and similar projects such as the proposed Mackenzie Valley pipeline, may I ask whether the minister has any definite plans to train native people so that they can find employment in connection with these undertakings?
