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


Robert Evans Skelly

New Democratic Party

Mr. Skelly (Comox-Alberni):

Mr. Speaker, I would like to associate myself with the remarks made by the minister once I get a translation. I trust the member for Nunatsiaq who assured us there was nothing derogatory in them.
I agree with his statement that June 4, 1993 is an important day for the people of Nunavut. It is almost equivalent to the July 1 celebration Canada enjoys on its birthday.
I am very proud to have been here representing the New Democratic Party at the birthday of Nunavut. I wish the young territory all the best in the future. Given the talent brought to bear on the negotiations, that talent will be brought to bear on the government of Nunavut and we will have a very successful territory.
