Thank you, Mr. Chair. Again we see on here the new 6,000 square metre general purpose office building in Yellowknife for $3.967 million. I would assume this is the last amount of money available for completion of this building. Thank you.

Wendy Bisaro Frame Lake

Thanks, Mr. Chair. I have a question with regards to the $300,000 for a planning study for Taiga Lab. I guess I would like to know, this is a new expense, I think. It looks to me like it’s a new

expense. So, why are we not able to put this into our budget which we passed not very long ago? Thank you.

Kalgutkar

Thank you, Mr. Chair. This project is going to be funded through the one-time transitional funding that was provided as part of the Devolution Final Agreement. There is some surplus available in that funding and we thought given that that lab does need a bit of refreshing and some upgrading, this would be a good opportunity to utilize that funding to look at doing that for that lab. Thank you.
