Mr. Axworthy:

Mr. Chairman, I should point out to the hon. member that LEAP has a specific date attached to it and if jobs end under the program, obviously there would have to be new funding. The people would certainly be eligible for application under the community development program if they so desire, but LEAP has its own terms of reference. I should point out also that LEAP will be continuing as well. Much of the funds that have been allocated this year has been spent, but LEAP is an ongoing, continuing part of our employment strategy. The community development program is in addition to LEAP which is already in place.
