Thank you very much, Mr. Déry.
Mr. Smith, in your remarks, you mentioned the 2017 forest bioeconomy framework for Canada, and you later circled back to tell us that a renewed forest bioeconomy framework was endorsed in 2022.
You said that the most relevant challenge for us today was the lack of support for demonstrations and scale‑up funding, which are needed to approve and commercialize innovative technology products.
That was music to my ears, because that's what the entire forest industry has been trying to say for several years. Now, obviously—I'm not trying to be abrasive—it seems like there's a serious gap between what you're saying and government action.
I don't see any concrete action from the government. I don't know what took place between 2017 and 2022, but since 2022, people in the forestry sector keep telling me that the investments in forest industry transformation program, or IFIT, is the only program they have. They say that it's underfunded and that they are the poor cousins of the natural resources sector.
Do you have any examples of government support that would allow us to reverse this lack of support for the bioeconomy sector?
