Ms. Ethel Blondin-Andrew (Western Arctic):

Madam Speaker, this conflict has been simmering for over one year. The minister has not even been to the city of Yellowknife in that year. People are near the breaking point. Violence is on the rise. Nine lives have been lost and the mediation process has not been as successful as we would have liked to this point.
The minister promised to resolve the conflict six months ago but today, the city of Yellowknife has one strike still unresolved and it is facing another possible strike with the other mine.
Parliament recesses tomorrow. What is this minister going to do?
