Recently there was a study done in southern Manitoba that looked at leakage. This is for every dollar that's spent. When they did their study, they looked at net contribution to the economy. The first nations in Manitoba are net contributors to the economy. I think the general population sometimes thinks that we are net takers from the economy, but we're actually not. There are tremendous amounts of revenues being generated as a result of activities going on in first nations communities.
