We've had many comments about compulsory pilotage, for instance. There's often a misconception about the requirement for pilots to be on board ships. In the case of all Canadian waters, any waters designated as compulsory pilotage waters must have a Canadian pilot on board. These pilots must be licensed under the appropriate authority, and there are no exceptions to these rules. These encompass all the waters of Canada, and obviously the Pacific coast is very much in that. These rules regarding compulsory pilotage are very consistent.
