Ms. Ethel Blondin-Andrew (Western Arctic):

Madam Speaker, my question is for the Minister of Labour.
For more than a year now the city of Yellowknife has been wreaked by increasing tension, violence and utter frustration and the volatile strike at the Giant mine continues. Because the federal government has full jurisdiction over this situation the people of Yellowknife are forced to wait until the minister decides he is ready to work seriously on resolving this crisis.
What additional action is the minister planning to take to alleviate the residents' agony and to avoid another deadly incident in this strike?
