Thank you to our witnesses for being here today.
I'd like to pick up on something you raised earlier, Mr. Stuart. You talked about that opinion piece written by Mr. Balsillie a while back in The Globe and Mail. He talked about Canada not getting its innovation infrastructure right. He talked a lot about IP, and he made a number of recommendations. One of them was for sovereign patent pools to help SMEs especially and that Canada had fallen behind other jurisdictions on this.
In your experience, would that be helpful, or is it something you have felt has been lacking and Canada should address?
