Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to say that effectively for the current fiscal year we have in fact done just that. We have eliminated the clawback provision and because of that, Saskatchewan has benefited by $590 million. On top of that, we have corrected some of the old anomalies in the calculation. That has added another $120 million. Indeed it is true. Under the tenure of this finance minister, we have delivered to Saskatchewan an extra $710 million.
