Thank you, Madam Chair. In terms of monitoring, I guess, or policing that, how many people or officers would be in place during the summer, or during the run of, say, pickerel in the South Slave? Thank you, Madam Chair.

No, I think that's all. I just want to make sure that fish are protected. Thank you, Madam Chair.

Thank you, Madam Chair. Just one quick comment. In regard to your caribou monitoring up in the Delta, right in Husky Lake area, they're flying around with helicopters, they're buzzing; they shouldn't be buzzing hunters, when they're hunting. It's kind of dangerous. I just came to a couple of text messages in regard to that, so where does it say, with the department, when you're doing stuff like that, don't they have to fly at a certain level and stuff like that, when they're doing stuff like that, in regard to caribou monitoring, instead of scaring them? Thank you, Madam Chair.

You're going to start following the best practices by some of your officers who are doing their job. I commend them and all, what they're doing, and working safely, and stuff like that, but when you're starting to do that, that's almost a Member's statement, but for myself, that has to stop. You shouldn't be buzzing hunters, and in regard to safety and that of them, and your workers. More a comment. Thank you, Madam Chair.
