Jordi Morgan: Speaking of Crown Lands, you’ve had some discussion, and I know that it’s certainly been a point of discussion here, around Owls Head and that deal… Can you tell us if you’ve turned your attention towards that and finding some solution to that problem down on the Eastern Shore?

Premier Rankin: Well, I’ve always had the position that it’s important that we listen to communities. I know that there was a project that was proposed that many people are concerned about, in terms of the environmental impacts of that area. So, it’s important that we hear those concerns and what’s really important is that we take conservation seriously and I’ve committed to an aggressive plan to protect land throughout the province. There’s a Parks and Protected Areas Plan that has many sites, literally over 100, that we’re going to commit to, and protect for generations to come.
