No, Mr. Speaker. It includes all high school programming in the communities.

I take it from the Minister's answer that when the department talks about a high school program being available in the community, it is not a high school program if it does not offer both the general and the advanced diploma. My question then is, since today -- for better or for worse -- there are only advanced or matriculation diplomas available in two communities out of 13 on Baffin Island, would the Minister agree then, for the purposes of this draft funding formula, that there are only two communities on Baffin Island where high school students are able to obtain high school programs in their home community? Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. If the information the honourable Member is providing is absolutely correct then, obviously, there are some problems with the programming. But, the fact is, the board has the responsibility of recognizing their responsibility to deliver those programs. We moved the delivery of programs to the boards and they should be held accountable for the programs that are in those communities. Now, if there are circumstances which the honourable Member has raised, such as matriculation or advanced programming -- and we only have one diploma now -- then that has to be considered as part of the report. I think the honourable Member is raising some important points which could have a bearing on the recommendations for Ukiivik residence or, for that matter, for a residence in the Baffin.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, I have a question I would like to direct to the Minister of Transportation. Members will have heard the good news about the forthcoming friendly takeover of Arctic A airports. It was announced not too long ago that there was an agreement. I would like to ask the Minister if all the plans are in place now to take over these assets, liabilities, staff and budgets, and when will this occur.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. It was originally our intent to try to make the appropriate arrangements for the transfer for April 1, 1995. A satisfactory agreement has now been reached between ourselves and the federal government with respect to base funding and the transfer of jobs and we have a plan in place that would make sure this transfer takes place in an orderly way, effective July 1, 1995. Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. There will be other questions I will have on that a little later on, as I get more details. There are some things that are already in place that kind of irk people and I would like to ask the Minister about one of them. I have been to five of the Arctic A airports that are going to be coming under our jurisdiction here shortly, and I noticed that only one of them -- the Yellowknife airport -- has fee parking where you have to pay to get out. It is the only one among all the airports in the territories that we are taking over. I would like to ask the Minister whether or not he is going to be introducing parking fees to all of the other airports after the takeover or are we going to do away with the parking fee here in the north?

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. At this time, I think it is a bit premature to determine whether we are going to increase any additional fees to the airports, as the negotiations are currently under way. Thank you.
