Thank you. I'd like to thank both gentlemen for coming out today and speaking to us.
Mr. Grisdale, first of all I want to say thank you to Rigstar, because I used your facilities many times over the years as I travelled through northern British Columbia and Alberta in my different occupations. I always looked for where you guys were because I knew I could get out and talk to somebody, so thank you for that. I know that you do have a specialty in that line.
A number of counties have submitted briefs in response to this study because they're very concerned about their coverage for the residents in their communities. One solution—and I think you spoke briefly on this—is for the municipalities or the counties to build their own infrastructure, which takes a fair amount of money. Maybe they can get part of that, as somebody said earlier, through infrastructure grants and, instead of building roads, build towers or systems.
Here's my question for you, sir. You talked about private industry doing that versus the counties and said that you didn't think it would be economically feasible for private industry. I wonder if you could just expand on it a little more. I know that in some areas such as Parkland County, on the eastern side of my riding, we've had companies come in. They offer a service with so many megabytes, and that's great until they load the system down with so many customers to try to make them pay for it that the only time you get those megabytes is at about four o'clock in the morning, and then hopefully you're the only one on it.
I wonder if you could expound on that and see whether you think it would more viable for the counties or municipalities to do it as an infrastructure-type program or more viable for private industry.
Thank you, sir.
