Thank you, Madam Speaker. Madam Speaker, there was, as I indicated, a decision paper done. We also looked at other options prior to going to Cabinet with a final decision paper. I'm not sure what the Member means by a study, but the department looked at options and came forward with a decision paper to Cabinet. Thank you.

Thank you, Madam Speaker. Is the Minister suggesting any type of study or detailed information wasn't required at this particular time? Maybe he could elaborate what a decision paper means, for the

benefit of those tuning in. The decision paper; was it made by one person? Can you elaborate what it is? Thank you.

Thank you, Madam Speaker. Madam Speaker, part of the decision was to see whether there was a capacity in the community of Hay River to run this program, and there was; whether there was existing resources to do the capital renovations, which there was; and that it was a contract, which it is; and would it be an appropriate decision, and that was what was brought to Cabinet and that was a decision that was made to proceed with the relocation of Territorial Treatment Centre from Yellowknife to Hay River. Thank you.

Thank you, Madam Speaker. Madam Speaker, my question today is for the Minister of Environment and Natural Resources. Madam Speaker, in the recent cleanups of the communities, we witnessed a lot of plastic garbage bags in our communities by the Northern Stores. I want to ask the Minister of Environment and Natural Resources if there is any type of incentive or partnership with the Northern Stores to have some incentive that the plastic bags could be recycled or put somewhere? They're destroying the land. I want to ask the Minister if he would look into something that would make a decision to not have these plastic bags all over the communities and on our land. Thank you.
