On the issue of the boreal caribou, I think that what is important for the caribou is the ecosystem processes, of which habitat is of course an important part. What I mean is that what has happened—correct me, if I'm wrong—is that many old-growth forests have been cut over because of commercial forestry, and as we discussed a minute ago, the young forest comes back, the moose and deer increase, and the wolves follow, by and large. One of the major reasons for the decline in caribou is that they are not adapted to predation by wolves. Is that correct?
