A foreign investment protection agreement is something that's been discussed widely in Canada recently because of the agreement with China. It's an agreement that gives equal status to a foreigner who invests in your country who will therefore face no discrimination because of the origin of the investment. The free trade agreement is designed to promote more flow in goods and services. We've seen many of those. You can remind me of the number that were passed under the previous government, which greatly enhanced the prosperity of Canadians.
All of these things are in the interest of Canada and of Canadian people. You mentioned the word “democracy” in your question. Many Canadians like the notion of dealing with other democratic places, and certainly Taiwan has a great track record in that respect.
