(Translation) Thank you, Mr. Speaker. This is a supplementary to my question. The community of Pelly Bay wants jobs created for young people in the area of creating docks. There needs to be a clearing of the shoreline. I wonder if the Minister can give me a response as to whether these will be carried out as a project for creating jobs for young people in Taloyoak to clear the beach area. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. A precedent has been established in lqaluit, where we worked closely with the community there with marine development. We had cleared the beaches of large rocks and debris to provide better access to the boat owners whether they were private in terms of recreational or commercial. As I said, we are currently in discussions with the municipality of Taloyoak in an effort to make a similar arrangement with that community to improve their wharf and marine facilities in that community.

The emphasis that we are currently looking at in terms of Nunavut is an expansion of the wharf and marine facility program. I am optimistic that in the coming years, we will see more activity and more money spent in that area. Thank you.

Question 609-12(7): Relocation Of Polar Bear Management To Baffin Region

(Translation) Thank you, Mr. Speaker. In the previous session, I asked a question. I will ask a supplementary to a question I asked at that time. This is to the Minister of Renewable Resources. Polar bear management isn't going to stay in Yellowknife; they will be moved to the Baffin region. Since their office is going to be transferred over to that region, when does the Minister think that is going to happen?

(Translation) Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I am happy to say that this will be done because this was dealt with at our meeting this morning. It was approved that polar bear management is going to be moved to the Nunavut area. This move will commence in the fall. Thank you.

Question 610-12(7): Officers For Truck Inspections On Highway System

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I would like to direct a question to the Minister of Transportation. It is a compliment on an initiative that his department will be undertaking shortly regarding transportation on the highways;big truck inspections. In the announcement referring to the inspections, they said they would be employing some 12 officers manning our two inspection sites at Enterprise and Inuvik for this 72-hour effort. Do we have 12 officers or are they hiring new people to do these inspections?

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I believe that the operation with respect to the inspection of trucks is being done by the current staff that we have. Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. No, Mr. Speaker. There is a growing concern, particularly in the last six or seven months right across the country with respect to big trucks and safety as it relates to that equipment. I believe recently on the news there was a particular concern raised when there were two nasty accidents in Ontario. So this is an overall approach by the provinces and territorial jurisdictions to bring about the more vigilant approach to inspections to ensure that these trucks barrelling down our highways are doing so in a safe and orderly way to protect the interests of territorial citizens. Thank you.
