Mr. Chairman, I would like to hear some comments from the minister regarding clause 5, subclause 2 (d). I ask about this because I understand some of the provinces are concerned as to how huch responsibility is placed on them by this provision in the matter of recovering costs where a third party is liable for damages. May I ask, specifically, whether a province has to wait until it has recovered such costs, or whether payment is made in advance? May I ask, also, how far a province would have to go in taking legal action under this clause? Perhaps the minister would comment on this subclause.
