If you think of any other of those kinds of things later, we would welcome your written submission afterward, which could also be included as an addendum to the report. Sometimes it's hard to think of all these things off the top of your head. I think that would be important input in terms of what we can advise as policy-makers that would benefit small and medium-sized developers. You often hear of programs like that, which are targeted to big multinationals or even wealthier individuals who can already afford to make adjustments, and then somehow, through either bureaucracy or unintended consequences, they exclude operators like you. I welcome you to provide any further feedback.
I want to thank both of you for being here to provide your testimony.
I come from northern Alberta. You'll recall last year that, starting on May 1, 2016, the Fort McMurray wildfires were announced, and they were fully extinguished in August 2017. At its height, it was burning just about 6,000 square kilometres, and it burned thousands of residences and 22 commercial buildings. The Insurance Bureau of Canada says it's the costliest disaster in Canadian history.
As a northern Albertan, I can't say enough how much we thank you and your members for the self-sacrifice and for the risk-taking work you do. For the people who have gone through that fire, and that community, as you know, maybe it's not in the headlines or on the front page of the news anymore, but it's still just the beginning of a long journey and process of recovery for them.
I think I'm interested, and I think all of the members—
