Ottawa won’t dictate, says northern minister on first NWT visit

January 15, 2020

Cabin Radio - The first Canadian federal minister assigned solely to northern affairs says the days of Ottawa dictating which projects are most important to the North are gone. "It's just a matter of doing the groundwork before I can say that this is priority one, priority two," he stressed. I was in Churchill on Friday, I was in Whitehorse yesterday, I'm in Yellowknife today, I'm going to be in Ottawa by Thursday. And I'm going to work in collaboration with other ministers in the cabinet, such as transportation, such as environment, such as infrastructure. I'm going to continue to take that same approach and work in partnership with municipalities, Indigenous nations, and territories.
