I want to be very brief, but I want to thank you all very much for being so patient. It's been a very long day. Please allow me to make a couple of comments and then ask a question.
I would like to speak to Mr. LaRose for a minute.
I welcome you. We appreciate your comments very much.
You said APTN is a success story. I want you to know that I'm very familiar with it, and I want to congratulate you for it.
You made a couple of comments I want to bring up again. In your dissertation, I've highlighted that you indicated the BDUs will aggressively market the fee—we're talking about the fee for carriage—as a tax on consumers. We have heard that before, and I underline it in your dissertation, because in northern communities and in our aboriginal communities—as you pointed out very clearly, both aboriginal stations—cost is something that needs to be considered. These are communities sometimes affected largely by poverty and issues of poor economies. I bring this out again and want to reaffirm it because you mentioned it.
You also mentioned the made in Canada basic service package. I would like to know whether you could make this available to the committee. I take great interest in what you proposed to the CRTC in the past under that made in Canada basic service package and what the comments were that the CRTC made about the package you proposed. Can you clarify that for us or give us a few details about it?
