June 4, 1993 (34th Parliament, 3rd Session)


Jack Iyerak Anawak


Mr. Anawak:

Mr. Speaker, I can safely say there were no derogatory remarks.
I would like to close by saying as I mentioned earlier that this has been a very humbling experience. It is a very proud day for the people of Nunavut as represented by the people in the gallery from Nunavut area.
I am very proud to have been part of the deliberations on the two bills: on the land claims bill and on the bill dealing with the creation of Nunavut.
Along with my colleagues from the north we are able to say that June 4, 1993 is a very important day for the people of Nunavut. It is a day to remember and tell our grandchildren about.
