I'd be happy to. I'm glad you looped back to something I wanted to touch on.
On the safety issue per se, I could come back to the example that I gave with the Forest Products Association of Canada and their 40-storey wooden buildings. A lot of that is, again, simply research that will help us to better understand these issues and help to lead the public to accept, in fact, what that shows.
But one of the things I wanted to touch on was the way in which we still maintain a fairly linear sense of discovery to invention, innovation, and application. I just want to give you an example of how the world really doesn't look like that, and it touches on your question of what the gap is.
In my former life, I was the vice-president of research at a major Canadian university. I can assure you that in Canada there are likely hundreds and hundreds of patents for amazing technologies sitting on the shelves of Canadian university technology transfer offices and being maintained at some considerable cost.
These are a couple of examples. An inventor had a 360-degree digital camera—amazing. The other one was a hand-held 3-D digital scanner, so he just basically moved the scanner. This goes back to a comment that was made by Madam Papillon. Have those technologies been adopted? No. Why? They're clearly disruptive somehow in the imagination, but the problem is that these things exist as scientific advances without a business planning culture, innovative thinking, or market savvy that would take them where they need to go. Sometimes we talk about receptivity, risk-taking on behalf of companies, who just haven't taken them up.
That's not a perfect answer to your question, but in part my feeling is that the gap exists, not with the development of the technology and our capacity to do that, because I think we're eminently capable given the things that we've done; it exists with the individuals who have the savvy, the ability, and the risk-taking attitudes that can take these technologies and imagine how they can be used in order to succeed in the marketplace. That is a gap in this country.
