Thank you, Mr. Chair. The plan is, because of the delay, it will be scheduled for the summer of 2019, which is beyond April 1st. Thank you.

Thanks, Mr. Chair. I am certainly not a financial wiz. Why is this thing a supplementary appropriation for 2018-2019 when the work is actually going to take place after April 1st, into the new year, 2019-2020? Thanks, Mr. Chair.

Thank you, Mr. Chair. To install equipment, first you must purchase it, and I think that is one of the reasons. Well, that is the reason we have the new supplementary appropriation, is that the equipment needs to be purchased. Thank you.

Thanks, Mr. Chair. So this money is actually just for purchasing equipment; then the installation is going to happen after April 1st. Is that going to require another supplementary appropriation, for the installation costs? Thanks, Mr. Chair.

Thank you, Mr. Chair. No, I believe this amount is for both the purchase of the equipment and the installation, so there will be some carry-overs on the installation side, but this will help them to get started with getting the contractors in place and ordering equipment. Thanks, Mr. Chair.

Thanks, Mr. Chair. I am sure everyone wants to get this work done as quickly as possible. I think kids are being put at risk because they do not have proper washroom facilities and there is not proper playground equipment for them. I guess I would urge that we get this work done as quickly as possible. Thanks, Mr. Chair.

Yes, thank you, Mr. Chair. We would like to see all of this work done as quickly and as soon as possible. We will get the equipment purchased. As I said earlier, all of the washrooms have been completed, so that is not the issue. It's just getting the playground equipment installed. I agree with the Member. We need to ensure that we have all of this work done for the children of the Northwest Territories. Thank you.
