If I could I'd break it down to quality of life opportunities, which I think Mr. Lowry also mentioned. Our lands that we manage and the ones that we own—we have about 67,000 acres right now—are open to the public for access for berry picking, hiking, photography, and all of what we would classify maybe as non-consumptive outdoor activities. They are certainly open to hunting, angling, and other activities.
The other benefits are agricultural. In Saskatchewan most of our lands are hayed or grazed. The only difference is rather than having an agricultural perspective when grazing rates are determined, ours are determined by benefits to the habitat there. Grazing is incorporated as a tool to do that.
There is also an economic benefit to our lands outside of the activities that go on through hunting, and angling, and others. Most of our lands we manage were purchased through the fish and wildlife development fund, which we all contribute to with 30% of all license fees. Those were purchased and we have just taken over management of those because they were not being actively managed, which does not do the properties.... It doesn't help the wildlife values on those properties, but it increases the agricultural opportunities within those properties.
