Thank you, Mr. Speaker. There was no residence. What it was was information that had to do with a community matter that was quoted on the document, so I apologize for that. Just so that the honourable Member is aware, there are nine staff members in Iqaluit and there are also 2.5 broken down into a husband and wife team and a part-time cook. That makes the 2.5.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. My question is to the Minister of DPW. Mr. Speaker, it's unfortunate that the process has gone too far to correct some of the inconsistencies in tender awarding. I would like to ask the Minister upon developing a reply to this House, would he be willing to assure us that what areas could be corrected will be, ensuring government funding is going to be spent in the most conscientious, effective and economical manner. Would he advise this House that those areas would be considered? Thank you.

Mr. Speaker, not to give the impression that I don't have faith in the department, but because of the sensitivities that have been raised here in the last two days with regard to this particular job in Fort Smith, I've told the department not to award any more of these contracts unless it's been across my desk first. That is so that I can bring the concerns that are being raised here to the forefront before the awards. So I will say to this House that, yes, we will look at all of those issues with regard to local hire, local contractors, northern contractors, northern spending of northern money and try and keep as much of the job in the Northwest Territories, which I think was the former Minister's position. I'm sure that once I've revealed the numbers to the House, you'll see that it was carried out to the best of their ability. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. In the absence of the Premier, I would like to ask the Deputy Premier, yesterday in the House, the Premier stated in response to a question by Mr. Patterson that in two communities, it has been ruled out that Social Services will be now paying for half of GLO positions, allowing these positions to be full time. My question to the Deputy Premier is in which two communities have these arrangements been worked out?

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. The Cape Dorset air terminal building will proceed with construction this year. I believe there is $1.5 million in the budget and it will be going out to public tender through Public Works; some time next month, I believe. Thank you.

Question 79-12(7): Status Of Grades In Proposed Funding Formula
Item 6: Oral Questions

Dennis Patterson Iqaluit

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I guess I'm still on about the proposed draft new residence funding formula up for discussion. I understand it is based on the principle where high school grades exist in a community, the board will not be funded for residence or home boarding costs for students to attend a regional high school. I would just like to ask the Minister, when the department talks about high school grades existing in a community in this proposed funding formula, does this refer to general diploma high school grades only? Thank you.
