ROYAL COMMISSION INQUIRY INTO NORTHERN TRANSPORTATION

THE COMMISSIONER STATES IN HIS REPORT "IT IS OUR FIRM CONVICTION THAT IF THE NATIVE PEOPLE OF THE NORTH ARE TO FULLY PARTICIPATE IN THE ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL LIFE OF THE PROVINCE, REASONABLE ACCESS TO LARGER CENTRES (IN THE AREA) IS ESSENTIAL... A NATIONAL TRANSPORTATION POLICY DESIGNED TO MEET THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE CANADIAN NORTH IS CRITICAL TO ITS DEVELOPMENT AND TO ITS INTEGRATION INTO THE NATIONAL ECONOMY. IT MUST BIND THE NORTHERN REGIONS TO THE REST OF THE NATION TO PROVIDE NORTHERN RESIDENTS WITH AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY TO ENJOY THE ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL BENEFITS AVAILABLE TO ALL CANADIAN CITIZENS." /CGRA/
