SPEAKER’S ADDRESS TO THE ASSEMBLY

Speaker: Com= missioner Phillips, Premier Silver, Members of the Legislature, colleagues and visito= rs, I would like to express my thanks to the Assembly for the great honour it h= as given me by electing me to be its 25th Speaker.

In pre= paring this brief address to the Assembly, I have had the benefit of meeting with two-term Speaker of this Assembly, Mr. Ted Staffen, as well as having reviewed and adopted some of both Speaker Staffen’s and Speaker David=  Laxton’s previous observations and comments, for which I thank them both.

The Cl= erk and Deputy Clerk of the Legislative Assembly have graciously provided me with s= ome compelling Speaker-related historical background information as well, which= I will provide you with right now. When William Lenthall became Speaker of the British House of Commons in 1640, he politely advised the monarch of three fundamental requirements of the Parliament: access to the Sovereign, privil= ege from arrest and freedom of speech. In return, the Speaker promised on behal= f of the Parliament fidelity and fiscal responsibility.

Two ye= ars later, when the King entered the House demanding the identity of five disruptive members and asking their whereabouts, Lenthall, with good sense, told them = the Speaker had neither eyes to see nor tongue to speak, but only as members direct. This reinforced the Speaker as Parliament’s spokesperson for conveying its resolution to the Sovereign and, equally importantly, confirm= ing the Speaker as a neutral servant of the House. This remains true these many centuries later, as you have witnessed in our federal House of Commons.

There = is an ancient tradition that the Speaker nominee has taken on this role with a certain degree of reluctance, albeit now somewhat feigned reluctance, as th= ey were actually historically assuming some personal physical peril should they fall into disfavour with the ruling monarch of the day.

This i= s where I had a few examples of what befell prior Speakers, so just bear with me brie= fly. Sir John Bussy I’m sure was a fine Speaker between 1394 and 1398 in t= he constituency of Lincolnshire. He was a supporter of Richard II; however, unfortunately, he was executed by Henry IV for treason. Death was deemed to= be more political than procedural.

The se= cond example we have is one William Catesby in the constituency of Northamptonsh= ire just yesterday in 1484. He was beheaded on August 25, 1485. He fought at the Battle of Bosworth Field beside King Richard III. He was captured and execu= ted by the King’s enemies.

The fi= nal example — which is, of course, the most famous example most of us wil= l be familiar with — is Sir Thomas More who was also Speaker of the House = from the constituency of Middlesex in 1523. He was beheaded in 1535. As you know= the story, he lost favour with his best friend at one time, King Henry VIII, apparently not for anything he did as Speaker, but as we know, with respect with how he dealt with Mr. More and how he dealt with a few of his spouses, he did not dawdle where the execution of enemies was concerned.

Those = are some examples of why Speakers might have been reluctant in the past to assume th= is position. Although today’s Canadian federal, provincial and territori= al Speakers are unlikely to suffer such unfortunate and sometimes rather drama= tic and untimely demises, it nevertheless confirms the importance of the Speake= r’s role in ensuring the business of the Legislature is conducted in an independent, fair and respectful manner. To that end, it is the SpeakerR= 17;s duty to be impartial and to treat all members equally and without favour. T= his high standard must be met in order to maintain the confidence and respect of the Legislature, and I commit today to make my best efforts to do so.

To the honourable members, I ask that you conduct yourselves in debate not only wi= th vigour, creativity, industriousness and passion — which is expected of you — but also with the decorum befitting the special public office t= hat you have been elected to by your fellow citizens. Ultimately, how you treat= one another will, in large measure, determine the worth that Yukoners convey up= on you and on this Legislative Assembly.

To con= clude, I would like to thank my dedicated team of volunteers and of course my constituents in the electoral district of Riverdale North. I am humbled by = your support and look forward to serving you to the best of my ability.

Finall= y, I would of course be remiss in not expressing my gratitude to my wife Janet, as wel= l as our sons Max and Angus, who have been a constant and immeasurable source of support for me. Thank you very much.

Mr.&nb= sp;Clerk, will you please advise the Commissioner, in his capacity as Lieutenant Governor, that the Assembly is now prepared to hear the Speech from the Thr= one.

Commissioner Phillips enters the Chamber announc= ed by his Aides-de-Camp

Speaker’s address to the commissioner

Speaker:= 195;Mr. Commissioner, the Members of the Legislative Assembly have elected me to be their Speaker and= I recognize the important duties now given to me. If, in the performance of t= hose duties, I should at any time make a mistake, the fault is mine and not that= of the Assembly, whose servant I am. At this time, so that all members of the Assembly can best carry out their duty to Yukon, to their country and to th= e Queen, I would claim for them their undoubted rights and privileges, especially freedom of speech in their debates, access to your person when necessary and your favourable consideration of their proceedings.

RESPONSE BY the commissioner

Commissione= r: Thank you, Mr.&nbs= p;Speaker, I am pleased to declare to you that I believe in the duty of the Assembly a= nd, not doubting that the Assembly’s proceedings will be conducted with wisdom, temper and care, I grant and allow the Assembly’s constitutio= nal privileges. I assure you that the Assembly shall have ready access to me and that the Assembly’s proceedings, words and actions will receive from = me favourable consideration.

Please be seated.

Speech from the Throne

Commissione= r: Mr. Speaker, = Members of the Yukon Legislative Assembly, honoured guests and visitors, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the First Session of the 34th Legislature.

I first want to acknowledge that the o= pening of this new Legislature is occurring on the traditional territories of the Kwanlin Dün First Nation and the Ta’an Kwäch’än Council. I also want to recognize that Yukoners this year will be joining others across this great country in celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday. As well, in the Yukon, we will also be commemorating the 75t= h anniversary of the building of our Alaska Highway.

On behalf of all Yukon citizens, I wan= t to thank the members of this Assembly for your commitment to serve the public.= I want to give a special welcome to the members on both sides of the House elected for the very first time. I know the feeli= ng that must be here today with your family members in the audience and others= who you have told that you are now an official member of the Yukon Legislative Assembly, representing your constituents.

Our sy= stem of government depends on the willingness of people to put their names forward = and put their time and effort into working on behalf of the Yukon people. This = is the 10th Legislature since the Yukon achieved responsible govern= ment in 1979. It is time to reflect on what we have achieved in the Yukon in the past 35 years. The responsibilities of this Legislature have grown in this period. With the devolution of jurisdiction for natural resources more than= 10 years ago, these responsibilities now are largely the same as those of a province.

Most Y= ukon First Nations are self-governing, having reached their First Nation final and self-government agreements over the course of the last three decades. Yukon First Nations play a key role in our economic, social and cultural life in = the Yukon and our community recognizes the importance of advancing reconciliati= on.

Our sy= stem of government has matured and our ability as a jurisdiction to speak on the national stage about issues important to the people here has grown. All par= ties represented in this Legislative Assembly have contributed to the progress t= he Yukon has made since 1979. I want to acknowledge the efforts of the many involved in that over the years.

Over t= he next two months, my government will be carrying out a review of spending priorit= ies. This review will provide the basis for an appropriation bill for the coming fiscal year, which the government will present to the House in March, along with the supplementary estimates for the current year. At that time, my government will also present a Speech from the Throne that will set out in = more detail the government’s priorities and its legislative proposals.

The ag= enda for this Session is to put the machinery of the Legislative Assembly in place. = You have elected a Speaker to preside over discussions in this House. You will = be asked to elect the other two House Officers — the Deputy Speaker and = the Deputy Chair of Committee of the Whole. As well, you will be asked to appoi= nt members to the Assembly’s standing committees. These decisions will a= llow the work of the legislative committees to get underway before the House mee= ts again this spring.

On a p= ersonal note, being rather early in the New Year, I want to take this opportunity to wish all members of this Legislature, as well as all Yukoners, a very happy, prosperous and healthy New Year.

Honour= able members, thank you. May fairness and wisdom guide your deliberations.

&= nbsp;

Hon. Mr. Silver: Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

ItR= 17;s a different view over here. I have to say that I’ve always had friends = in this Legislative Assembly; it’s nice to have colleagues on this side. Thank you.

Mr.&nb= sp;Speaker, I am pleased to speak in reply to the Speech from the Throne on behalf of t= he government side at this opening of the 34th Legislature. I want = to echo the Commissioner’s remarks in congratulating the honourable memb= ers on their election to this House.

For th= ose elected for the first time, this is a new experience. I know that you can r= ely on the staff of the Legislative Assembly to help you learning the ropes. I’m extremely proud of the members of my team who have been elected f= or the first time. They bring a wealth of experience and expertise to this Hou= se, including skills and knowledge that they have gained from working for and w= ith First Nation governments and with municipalities, in the business world, non-profit societies and in public service.

I woul= d also like to congratulate the Honourable Member for Porter Creek North on her election as a first-time member of this Legislative Assembly. The honourable member has already contributed much to this territory as the Yukon’s Commissioner and also as the Chancellor of the Yukon College. I know that s= he will continue her tradition of service in her new role.

To oth= er colleagues, I extend my congratulations on your re-election. I and the other members of our caucus look forward to working with you over the next coming sittings, months and years. I want to say a special word about the honourab= le Leader of the Third Party. I’m sure that I speak for all honourable members in conveying our support and good wishes to her at this difficult t= ime for her family.

I am t= ruly honoured that Yukoners have entrusted us with a mandate to govern the territory. In the coming years, we will work with energy and diligence to fulfill our commitments to the people of Yukon. We have committed to a respectful and collaborative relationship with Yukon First Nations. Tomorro= w, I, along with other ministers and government MLAs, will meet with the Grand Chief of the Council of Yukon First Nations and Yukon First Nation chiefs f= rom across the territory for our first Yukon Forum. We look forward to producti= ve discussions about shared priorities and how we will work effectively togeth= er over the next coming months and years for the benefit of all Yukoners.

We wil= l work to create jobs for Yukoners and a more diverse economy, balanced with stewards= hip of the environment. We are committed to building vibrant communities that benefit from community and economic development, where local solutions to l= ocal issues are valued. We want to help Yukoners lead healthier, productive lives supported by coordinated programs that meet their needs.

As a g= overnment, our responsibility is to bring to this Legislative Assembly budgetary and legislative proposals for it to consider that address these commitments. Our responsibility as ministers is not only to explain and to defend choices th= at we make and proposals that we advance, but also to listen to the ideas and = the opinions from the other side of this House. We understand that it is the ro= le of the opposition to question and to critique the proposals that we put for= ward in this House. This is a fundamental part of parliamentary democracy. We wi= ll not always agree. That is to be expected.

Apprec= iating that there are different views and perspectives among members of this Assem= bly, I have made a personal commitment to govern in a respectful manner. I have asked the same of my colleagues on this side of the House, and they share t= hat commitment. In that vein, I look forward to vigorous and principled debate = on the proposals being put forth in this Assembly.

Mr.&nb= sp;Speaker, I appreciate the support of the caucuses on the other side of this House in meeting earlier this Sitting to talk about this session. I also want to congratulate you on your election as Speaker of the House.

We wil= l have the opportunity later today to elect another two House officials — the De= puty Speaker, who also functions as the Chair of Committee of the Whole, and also the Deputy Chair of Committee of the Whole. We will also appoint members fr= om both sides of this Assembly to the standing committees of this House. This = will allow the work of these committees to get underway now before a full Sittin= g of the Assembly, which will begin in March.

Mr.&nb= sp;Speaker, I know all members of this Assembly are very proud of the individual ridings that they represent. I am no exception. Dawson City is my home and I repres= ent the Klondike region with great pride. I am incredibly proud and honoured to= be the MLA for the Klondike for a second term. Dawson is never far from my min= d. Wherever I may be, it is always in my heart.

Other = members in this House, I’m sure, feel the same about their communities. I’m sure of that because they wouldn’t be in this House if they didn̵= 7;t. They would not have been elected. We have the good fortune as Yukoners to l= ive in a territory of great beauty, a rich place of culture and history, which = has communities full of spirited and talented people — one might actually even say “colourful” — communities where looking out for = each other is just a way of life.

We all= want a territory where people live productive, fulfilled lives; where our economy creates and sustains jobs without compromising the ability of our environme= nt and to do the same for future generations; where the diversity of our population is respected and celebrated; and where Yukoners from infants to seniors and elders have a social safety net when needed. Mr. Speaker, = we will disagree at times on the ways to achieve and to sustain these goals. At the same time, we are all here to represent the people of Yukon and to act = on their behalf.

So I l= ook forward to working with all representatives here today, both in times of agreement and in times of challenge. I am confident that all members will k= eep in mind our collective commitment to Yukoners in the place that we all love= and call home — the Yukon.

Many t= hanks, Mr. Speaker.

&= nbsp;

Mr. Hassard: Mr. Speaker, I would just like to begin by congratulating you as well on your new role h= ere as Speaker of the House. I would also like to begin by thanking all of my constituents for the continued support and for entrusting me with the job of representing them in this Assembly one more time.

Mr.&nb= sp;Speaker, the key role of the Official Opposition is to hold the government to accoun= t, to ensure that they are governing responsibly and that they are following through on what they have promised. It’s for that reason that we feel= a longer Sitting would have been more appropriate. As you know Mr. Speak= er, Question Period is a critical part of our democratic system here in Yukon a= nd allows us, as members of the Legislative Assembly, to ask questions that are important, not only to our constituents, but to all Yukoners. However, the government has requested a shortened Session to allow for more time to get briefed and prepare to govern. In the interest of collaboration and constructive working relationships, we have agreed to this.

Mr.&nb= sp;Speaker, in the throne speech that we heard here today, the government has set out priorities over the next few months and I would like to address a few topics that I felt were notably missed. I believe that the Speech from the Throne failed to mention words such as “economy”, “jobs”, “growth”, “mining”, “information technology”, “agriculture”, “education” and “families”. We’re in a time where a downturn in the commo= dity markets and an uncertain economy are on the horizon and these topics are of= the utmost importance to all Yukoners.

Mr.&nb= sp;Speaker, the mining sector will continue to be critical to the economic future of th= is territory, and the thousands of Yukoners who benefit from it both directly = and indirectly will be looking for a government that has their interests at its core. As the government prepares its first budget over the next couple of months, we would like them to consider what they will do to support economi= c growth, create jobs, stand up for the mining sector and support families. For examp= le, will this government consider jump-starting mineral exploration in the territory through a creation of a mineral exploration tax credit and the investment of additional monies into the Yukon mineral exploration program? Further, will the government commit to continued support to the Yukon Chamb= er of Mines, Klondike Placer Miners’ Association and the Yukon Minerals Advisory Board? Such moves would have a great benefit for the entire territ= ory, and if the government were to act on such initiatives, we would be supporti= ve.

I woul= d hope that the government would also consider investment in energy-efficiency retrofits of schools, First Nation government buildings and Yukon government buildings. Increasing the amount available in the good energy residential incentive program would only improve these programs that have successfully supported our local construction industry while helping to create super-efficient homes that reduce greenhouse gases.

Anothe= r sector that has become an important contributor to the Yukon’s economy is th= e IT sector. Will this government consider working with and investing more money= in this industry? These are areas that we see as being beneficial to the local economy. Another benefit to the local economy and to food security would be= to take steps to increase the production of local food and agricultural produc= ts. Would the government consider improving childcare services in the communiti= es?

In ter= ms of education, will this government continue the work of the previous government by develo= ping a made-in-Yukon curriculum? A made-in-Yukon curriculum focused on improving fundamental skills while introducing modern subjects, such as financial and computer literacy, and emphasizing the importance of our northern perspecti= ves — including the integration of Yukon First Nations’ culture and values — would be a worthy initiative for this government to act on. Again, these would be areas that we would support seeing the government move on.

There = is another issue of importance to Yukoners and their families that the Yukon government will have to consider over the course of their mandate. The Speech from the Throne rightly references the importance of devolution to Yukon. Mr. S= peaker, as you know, successive governments of all political stripes have fought to expand the Yukon government’s responsibilities to give Yukoners the r= ight to choose their destiny rather than having it decided for us by someone in Ottawa. However, a concerning trend has arisen out of Ottawa where Yukon’s devolution and jurisdiction is being challenged. We have seen that with the recent unilateral decision by the federal government to ban offshore drilling without consulting with Yukon. We have seen that with the= ir unilateral cuts to the territorial transfer payments, with the Yukon now receiving somewhere in the neighbourhood of $6 million less than originally planned. We have seen it with their decision to make changes to the Canada Pension Plan without giving a say to the territories. We have seen it in the fact that they took northern health care off the table at the recent health ministers’ meeting, and we have also seen it with Ottawa’s deci= sion to force through a carbon tax, which will only increase the cost of goods h= ere in the north.

Mr.&nb= sp;Speaker, in the short time that this government has been in power, we have seen eith= er silence or defence of Ottawa’s decisions. I believe that this is dangerous and may in the long term weaken the powers that so many territori= al governments have fought for previously.

As the government begins to govern, they must remember that Yukoners elected them = to stand up for Yukon, not Ottawa. By standing up for Yukon, by growing the economy, by supporting the mining sector and creating jobs, we will all ens= ure that Yukon prospers and that our families and future generations can contin= ue to enjoy our great territory.

Thank = you very much, Mr. Speaker.

&= nbsp;

Ms. White: It might surprise some to know that five years ago there was no mention of the= two First Nations on whose traditional territory we are privileged to stand together and I am so proud of how far we have come together. I thank both t= he Kwanlin Dün First Nation and the Ta’an Kwäch’än Council for allowing us to conduct the territory’s business here on t= heir traditional territory. I am extremely thankful for their contributions and = for those of all of Yukon’s 14 First Nations to our territory and I thank= the new Premier for acknowledging that.

Thank = you to my constituents in Takhini-Kopper King for placing your trust in me for a seco= nd time. It’s an honour to be here on your behalf and it’s with yo= u in mind that I will continue to work to fulfill my duties as a member of this Legislature.

Merci du fond du coeur aux résiden= ts de ma circonscription de Takhini-Kopper King qui ont renouvellé confian= ce en moi comme députée. C’est un honneur de vous représenter. Jour après jour, soyez assurez que vos intérêts et vos besoins sont ma priorité.

Mr.&nb= sp;Speaker, Yukoners participated in last fall’s election in droves. Our neighbou= rs have shown us the importance of robust, democratic participation and I take great pride in our community for that leadership and that lesson. I look forward to using the opportunity given to us by a new government to pursue = new ways to strengthen our democracy. But you know, Mr. Speaker, Yukon is = at a crossroads.

First = Nations are looking to government to finally fulfill their obligation to make reconciliation and meaningful consultation whole in government priorities. They’re ready for action and not just words. All Yukoners are looking= for leadership that takes real action to reduce income inequality; that address= es the ongoing housing shortage and takes a long-term stance on environmental protection. With continuing changes to the global climate we must work toge= ther harder than ever to keep our territory’s water clean and protected for future generations. A strong first step toward that goal is to ban fracking= in Yukon forever.

The wo= rld is turning to renewable energy at an unprecedented pace. Yukoners, like in most things, would much rather be visionaries than stragglers, and they’ve proven that in their ongoing investments in solar, geothermal and other renewable energies and it’s time for government to catch up. I’m sure that this new government is up to that new challenge and we look forwa= rd to working together toward that goal.

Over m= y years as an MLA — whether helping constituents who come to my office, meeting = them at their door or out in the community — I’ve seen both sides of government action. I have seen government get in the way. I have seen government policies make life really hard for people who are already strugg= ling and I have seen programs ignore the realities of people who already feel li= ke they are up against a wall. But I have also seen government lift people up. I ha= ve seen people’s lives transformed by meaningful help from a government program that actually works. I have seen the care and compassion shown by c= ivil servants that can make all the difference in someone’s life.

So, in= my view, if there is one thing that any government, no matter their political stripe, must make a priority, is to make life better for the people we represent — the people of the Yukon. That’s what it comes down to. All of= us here today — no matter on what side of the room you stand or are currently seated — have the ability to do good for the people we represent. So I wish all of us to keep that at the very top of mind every d= ay as we come to this Legislative Assembly to do the people’s work in the people’s House. As we begin a new term, the Yukon NDP caucus’ ongoing commitment to the people of Yukon is to work collaboratively on any initiative that will make life better for Yukoners. The little guy’s voice must always be heard and we’ll be here to amplify that voice if it’s missed.

So, Mr= . Speaker, I look forward to meeting and getting to know all of my new colleagues. I w= ish us luck in this mandate.
