Thank you so much for being here. Your presentations are very interesting.
I've not been to D3 but I have been to the Digital Media Zone. It's fascinating and it's really quite exceptional to see the ideas that come out of this kind of facility.
Something we were discussing in our last meeting with our previous groups of witnesses was that connection between the resources that we as a country invest in our educational system and in research. We are very lucky to have not only natural resources but also this investment in science and technology along with all of the research capacity.
If I'm hearing you correctly, the kind of thing you are trying to do is in fact to translate that public investment and private investment into creating wealth, creating jobs, creating innovation, and taking us forward. As you quite rightly say, we are not doing a good job of that now.
We're always looking for recommendations. Do you just recommend we replicate the kinds of things you are doing across the country or is there another level that the kind of work you are doing should go to? Can you tell us a bit about the kinds of things the government should be doing in a perfect world to assist in this tremendous creative process?
