Thank you, Mr. Speaker. This CEDO funding is one source of funding for the band councils, I know, in the west, and they make very good use of it. I am totally against anything that would jeopardize this type of funding. I am sure that the band councils, if they know or aware that there is some possibility that this is going to change, are going to be very concerned. I would like to ask the Minister if the chiefs of councils are aware that there is a review of this particular program and that the GNWT is, as the Minister put it, trying to protect this funding. Could the Minister elaborate on what he means by protecting the funding, as well? Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I think it's important to point out that we have no jurisdiction over this funding. This is a direct relationship between the federal government, DIAND, and the aboriginal groups. What we are saying is that discussions were under way with respect to trying to look at a new EDA program. Community futures was on the chopping block, and my understanding is that the CEDOs were being reviewed. So we have had some discussions in the broader context as it relates to federal funding with respect to economic development programs, but we have no direct jurisdiction at this time. That program is currently in the hands of DIAND. Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I would like to ask the Minister what type of dialogue is going on and if there have been letters exchanged. Maybe he could let us know about it, perhaps even giving us copies of what's been going on so we will be totally informed, because once the chiefs of council find about this, they'll be coming to us, as MLAs, and we have to be informed about this. Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I understand that there have been some meetings with the aboriginal groups. I know in the Nunavut area they've had some meetings directly with DIAND people. I'm not a party to those discussions. As I've said, we've been dealing with this thing in the broader context. We're just trying to endeavour, as we did with community futures, to ensure that these pots of money remain in the territories and that there's some integrity to the pots of money. In other words, they stay where they belong and in the hands of those that currently have them. That's the context in which we're dealing with this issue. Thank you.

Question 654-12(7): Alberta Company Contracted To Assist Dc-4 Fire Crews
Item 6: Oral Questions

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I have a question to the Minister responsible for fire management. Mr. Speaker, last week the Minister responded to a question on June 5th, and had indicated to this House that two companies were contracted to provide an experienced pilot to accompany

the DC-4 crews. One was Foulger Aviation Services of British Columbia and the other was Ken Harvey Associates of Alberta. It was my understanding at the time that it was a different company; that it was Air Spray from Red Deer.

Can the Minister indicate to this House whether or not his department has used Air Spray to assist DC-4s this past summer? Thank you.
