I have a tendency to focus on the environment itself as opposed to process—things like water quality, biodiversity, air quality, and so on. Given that many of those are governed by various acts and regulations both federally and provincially—the Species at Risk Act, the Migratory Birds Convention Act, the Fisheries Act, and so on—when mines are being developed or energy developments are being planned, I would assume that you build in the compliance with all those acts and regulations from the very beginning. Is that correct?
