Definitely it's taking time to catch up to the new security and the technological advances that we've seen in the last few years, so I would say, yes, there's a question of latency—latency in terms of the public's understanding of what they're exposed to. We'll do our best to inform Canadians through the means that we have, but I think it's also a bit unreasonable, unrealistic, to think that individuals will change completely their way of life for these reasons—and in North America there's a lot of travel between Canada and the U.S. Yes, we can inform some people, and some people will change their behaviour and, for instance, not bring as much personal information, but Parliament has a huge role in ensuring that the laws, to the extent that they deal with Canadian officers, protect people so that they are not subject to groundless searches.
