Supplementary Estimates (A), 2019-20  Madam Chair, the water system is in the A-base funding. That is not why it is not in the supplementaries today. A real focus on the promise and our commitment to get all the long-term boil water advisories lifted by March 2021 means that in successive budgets, if we have to put i

Supplementary Estimates (A), 2019-20  Madam Chair, I do not quite know what the member is referring to as out of line. Thankfully, in this platform commitment to get all infrastructure needs up to what communities need by 2030, the needs assessment will begin and we will get that done.

Supplementary Estimates (A), 2019-20  Madam Chair, as members know, the expansion of the current health centre has already happened. I think the minister has been in conversation with the community, and that care home will be built.

Supplementary Estimates (A), 2019-20  Madam Chair, for the member opposite, the standards are with the provincial regulations. That is what all communities have to abide by.

Supplementary Estimates (A), 2019-20  Madam Chair, that is a very interesting question. I believe that we as a department have a very good relationship with the communities and are working very well with them to get them the kind of water treatment plants and long-term solutions they require.

Supplementary Estimates (A), 2019-20  Madam Chair, I do not. I think we are trying to get out of court and to the negotiating table. We would like to work with those communities.

Carolyn BennettLiberal

Supplementary Estimates (A), 2019-20  Madam Chair, I need to explain to the member that a long-term drinking water advisory is one that lasts more than a year. That means we are always working with communities, from power outages to all of the other things that happen in all of our communities, to temporarily have a

Supplementary Estimates (A), 2019-20  Madam Speaker, I will have to check with Health Canada, which tests these systems. As members know, we absorb the ones that are also at gas stations and other things that are a direct responsibility of the federal government. However, we are always looking, because we want to pre

Supplementary Estimates (A), 2019-20  Madam Chair, as we look toward going forward, in order to stay out of court, we have an obligation with section 35 consultations to ensure that neighbours and other governments are comfortable, and I think we are back on track.

Supplementary Estimates (A), 2019-20  Madam Chair, that was indeed a terrible tragedy. I certainly remember meeting with the leadership. We will continue to work to get that airport fixed.

Carolyn BennettLiberal

Supplementary Estimates (A), 2019-20  Madam Chair, I would have to disagree with the hon. member in that it is very clear on how it is laid out. Any community that would like to assert its jurisdiction on its children and families will begin the process of writing its child well-being law. The Anishinabek Nation is d

Supplementary Estimates (A), 2019-20  Madam Chair, it was very interesting last week at the first ministers' meeting on the status of women to see the brilliant presentation from B.C.
