(Translation) Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I would like to direct my question to the Minister of Justice. This winter I gave him a question on the firearms regulations, and I have not received an answer to this point. We were given a statement that the firearms regulations were implemented in December, 1998, to the year 2000. They were going to have information programs for the general public.

We were told in Igoolik the RCMP is responsible for the firearms implementation in our region. For that reason, we will have to pay some fees, maybe approximately $25. At first, it started off as $150, and then it came down to $50, and then when you pay that fee we will be given a workshop in our area, after we have paid for the workshop fees. I do not believe this is required in our region. We are told to learn how to handle our rifles. These people are not from the Northwest Territories and they seem to be more knowledgeable about how to handle firearms. I would like to know exactly what kind of arrangements there are for firearms regulations. Thank you. (Translation ends)

(Translation) Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, the Alberta government is responsible

for the firearms regulations. They are applying to the Canadian government to appeal the firearms regulations and we will be involved, as well, with the Alberta government, as well as the Yukon, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario governments, to oppose this bill. We are not familiar at this time exactly as to how far they have gone to date with this opposition to the new firearms regulations in Canada. It is through the Canadian Supreme Court that it will take place and the hearing has not been set. What the honourable Member has asked, the question, I am not familiar at this time and when I know, then I will be able to answer his question. (Translation ends)

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. My question is directed to the Minister responsible for the Power Corporation. I would like to follow up on some questions that were asked earlier in reference to the contract that was awarded Woodworth Oil, a Newfoundland company, to provide fuel to a number of power plants in the Nunavut region.

Mr. Speaker, the Minister indicated that one of the criteria that they considered was creating a competitive environment. I would like the Minister to provide me with more detail as to exactly what he means by this. Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I would assume that the Power Corporation felt that by allowing another supplier or another supplier of shipping services to demonstrate whether or not they could do the job, that the next time the tender came up that there would be more chance of a competitive bid. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. The Minister indicated, last week I believe, that the price was not a major factor, that the prices were similar when they reviewed the RFP or RFQs, whatever they were regarding this contract. Mr. Speaker, it is my understanding over the last three and a half years we have been told an RFP, an RFQ, is a competitive process. What is the difference in reference to this award?

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. As I understand it, the process undertaken in the Keewatin was a request for proposal. It was not a request for quotation. A request for proposals is one in which the proposal by each company responding are evaluated by a team of managers and a decision is then made by the Corporation. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, can the Minister tell the House the type of fuel that was purchased in reference to this contract, whether it is the same type, same quality fuel that we are using now?
