This is for you, Ms. Cooper. I was fascinated by your testimony. There were a number of pieces that jumped out, so thank you for being here.
One of the points you made was that the federal government should be looking to support viable businesses that will essentially be able to stand on their own two feet at the back end of this pandemic. We don't want to throw good money after bad. I completely agree. However, there is a part of me that wonders if the federal government is really the body to pick winners and losers because, quite frankly, the private sector can surprise people. There is an entrepreneurial spirit when people have their own skin in the game that oftentimes is more effective than policy-makers sitting in a boardroom in Ottawa.
I'm curious. How can we conduct an exercise that will give us confidence that the support that we're putting out there into the marketplace is actually reaching viable businesses and not just delaying the inevitable for businesses that weren't structurally sound going into this pandemic?
