It's about the unfilled positions. It is not just this department. There are others. There are lots of unfilled positions right now. I'm wondering what the priority is on that.
I know that you're supportive of the Naylor report, but obviously, it has to come with the people to be able to do the recommendations that were suggested. For a community like mine, if we're looking at filling those positions, specific to that, what might your advice be? Is there going to be some type of support to, for example, repatriate Canadian scientists from the United States?
I thought your comments were appropriate. There are a lot of people with the credentials from Windsor and the surrounding area who have jobs in the United States who could be repatriated with the proper scientific investment in Canada. Often they come from other countries where, in Canada, their degrees aren't recognized. In fact, even in the medical system, we at times will send Canadians over to the United States to get medical treatment. They will be treated by doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals who aren't technically qualified to practise in Canada, are prohibited from doing so, and we'll pay a premium for it.
Similarly, in the science field, we have individuals and opportunities over in Detroit, Michigan, in the greater area. If we invested in science, for example, at the University of Windsor and other places, we could grow our scientific base. I'm just wondering whether there will be a coupling of that type of strategy to re-employ those scientists.
