Gentlemen, thank you very much for joining us.
Once again, I would like the record to show how important it is that we speak to people right across the country for their points of view. I think you offer a very particular one in that you are on the ground and experience every day the issues that we talk about periodically. You also have a very clear sense, it seems to me, of the larger world at play here that still affects people like you and us when we deliberate about these things.
There are two particular things, and the reason I am repeating them is partially that I want to make sure they are on the record. One, of course, is your issues with Canada Post, which I think are very interesting. If they are an impediment to local news in any way, that is something I think this committee should draw more attention to, because we are fixated on local news. That is what our constituents are telling us is a concern to them, and whatever we can do within our power to make sure people have access to more local news is vitally important.
The other thing that struck me.... I feel guilty that it didn't come to me before, because I did sit on the board of The Walrus magazine for a number of years and, of course, that is a magazine run out of a foundation in much the same model you described. Perhaps that is something this committee should take a look at, too, in its deliberations about whether there is an avenue for local news and local newspapers through foundations. Maybe that is something we can explore with the CRA, because it certainly works for The Walrus, and it works well.
You were very kind to us in allowing us to step out to meet the Paralympians, and I appreciate that. Let me write you a bit of a blank cheque here. I think you had about four issues you wanted to talk about, and we have covered a number of them: the tax system for the most part, copyright law, and Canada Post. Was there a fourth one that maybe I missed which you would like to have a little more time to spend on?
