Madam Speaker, when we first started this, we looked at pretty rough numbers of what it would cost to link all the communities of the Northwest Territories and get them all on line. At that time, the rough number was $9 or $10 million, and that was money we didn't have. What we are doing now is, as you heard yesterday, Public Works are doing some things to upgrade in the regions next year with their system. Within their particular areas of responsibility, departments are buying programs, using manuals and buying equipment and so on.
What we have decided to do is this committee will work towards standardizing the dollars already in department's budgets. So, as they are getting new equipment, it is of a certain standard and, as they are developing new programs, those programs will mesh with other departments and other users. That includes the divisional boards, the health boards, and so on and so forth.
If there is a major change to be made, that will be done by supplementary appropriation. But, at the present time, this committee is merely asking departments to spend the money they already have in their budgets in a coordinated and unified fashion. Thank you, Madam Speaker.
