Hon. Anne McLellan (Minister of Natural Resources)
Mr. Speaker, let me thank my hon. friend for his question.
Let me say as was stated last week in the House that estimates of cost overruns are at a preliminary stage at this point. The owners, including the government, have requested a report which will outline the exact nature of expected cost overruns.
At that point the owners will be doing everything in their power to ensure that whatever cost effective measures can be taken will be taken.
