I think we need foreign investment.
In the number of ventures I have developed, there has always been some Canadian support and leverage with some of our government programs to advance a prototype. As we got close to something that visibly looked like a product and could be brought to market, it was U.S., Austrian, or Hong Kong funding that came in and gave us that lift up.
As far as I am concerned, we're missing that element in our capital. It's foreign nations and foreign investors. I get excited when I have foreign strategic partners on the phone with me because I know they're serious. Yet at the same time, I need to protect my Canadian base and my resources.
I think with filling in that gap we need bigger risk takers. We can't be a nation of greatness without taking risk.
