When it comes to escorts, I think Minister Green explained it quite well. I share the concern around the lack of cultural sensitivity, I guess, included under the program. One of the issues we have around escorts is that from time to time a second escort is required if it's, say, for example.... At the end of the day, I like to talk about examples, because this program is about people. It's not dollars and cents. It's about health care for Canadians who live in the north or who are [Witness spoke in Inuktitut]—indigenous.
When you look at second escorts, in some cases we get requests from clients in the case of a child who is undergoing cancer chemotherapy. In some cases, the parent who is escorting that child needs support. It can be very heart-wrenching. That's an example where, for that second escort, as the Government of Nunavut we could approve that, and we will bear the cost on compassionate grounds.
In wrapping up my response, I'd like to mention that we have seen some improvements in this area through the Inuit child first initiative, which is a new and kind of exciting avenue for Inuit in terms of second escorts and additional family travel around medical needs.
