For example, in British Columbia, a medical procedure that normally costs a resident $100 costs an RCMP member $300. We bill the provinces 70% of that amount under the agreements and contracts. So the province had to pay $210 for that service and the federal government, that is to say the RCMP, paid $90. Under what is being proposed, that transaction would cost the provincial government $100. That's one example among many.
