Mr. Chairman, I think it is a good idea, but I just wanted to confirm the building "living quarters" in North Arm Park. Is there a plan to move a position there? Is it a person to stay there seasonally, or is that going to be the staff quarters for all year round? Thank you, Mr. Chair.

Thank you, Mr. Chair. I suspect, in working with the communities and Indigenous governments, that that will be like our other parks that are operated and maintained by contractors. It would be used by the contractor during the summer seasons. Thank you, Mr. Chair.

Thank you, Mr. Chair. I just wanted to see if this is where I can get a little bit of certainty about some projects that I already know were under way, but I received some notice that they were being deferred or that some of their budget was being taken away and moving to another project and that sort of thing.

I would just like to, while I can, given that this is going to be the last opportunity, maybe get an update through the Minister of Finance, an update from the Minister of ITI, what is the status of the Prosperous Lake boat launch and the Prelude Lake main docks expansion or boat launch project? Thank you, Mr. Chair.

Prosperous Lake boat launch. Prosperous Lake is in progress. Planning, design work is included; however, the project was tendered but bid prices were too high in 2018-2019. Infrastructure is working with engineering to reduce scope of work and to delete excess requirements from the design. I forget what his other one was, Mr. Chair.
