Thank you to the department officials for being here today.
As you know, we just had the commissioner of the environment here. She gave you a glowing report card on the work you're doing with regard to climate change mitigation and adaptation.
I have a number of questions with regard to small craft harbours specifically. The commissioner referenced the Margaree Harbour and using the tool to make sure that when the new structure was put in place, it met rising sea levels and storm surges. Is that tool used on every small craft harbour that needs to be fixed, changed, built, or rebuilt? I'm wondering this because in my riding I have probably the most small craft harbours in the country. There have been times, over the last number of years, when I have seen money put into building or fixing a structure, and then it's under water. It has not been adapted to the surges that are happening.
Is that tool readily available and always used, or it is just every now and then? Does somebody have to ask for it? I'm just wondering about the process for using the tool for that.
