Let me begin by saying I had a little trouble with the 10-minute limit I had to begin with so I appreciate your seven-minute concern.
It's hard to engage your people until you know what you're talking about, and until the different responsibilities were set out in the legislation in April, I don't think any province was in a position to move forward with any kind of public engagement.
Having said that, in my own province we've had some changes at the top in terms of our provincial leadership, and we were unable to proceed with any public consultation until given permission to do so. Over and above that we also had a by-election that was smack dab in the middle of all of that, and it wasn't until the day after the by-election that we were able to proceed publicly with our survey.
Having said that, we are doing our darndest to catch up. We have had a series of task groups and working groups working very diligently over the last number of months certainly predating the introduction of the legislation. But the list of what we have to do is just vast, and it's a mammoth undertaking. Our province isn't alone in the issues we have to address. Each province and territory is addressing the same issue, and we are doing our best to meet the deadline.
