Thank you for that. Certainly, when we listen to witnesses, we hear so much about the injection of technology and how that in effect has had a tremendous impact on manufacturing. Also, there may have been job losses in some areas, but as you've mentioned, Mr. Bachand, so many job gains in other areas.
Mr. Johnson, you've been involved with so many trade negotiations in the past. In past trade agreements, have the provinces been involved to the extent that they are now in the current NAFTA negotiations?
