Thompson can’t answer to bad gas


A question by Uqqummiut MLA David Iqaqrialu to former public works minister Manitok Thompson about bad gas was ruled out of order.

“In regard to the bad gasoline, the minister responsible for community government and transportation was the previous minister responsible for public works and services. When she held that portfolio she used to say that the bad gasoline was up to standard,” Iqaqrialu said.

“I was wondering if she is willing to apologize to the Nunavummiut for stating her position then, based on the results now.”

Speaker Kevin O’Brien ruled the question out of order because MLAs are not allowed to question cabinet ministers about former portfolios.
