We don't know and are in no position to be able to assess exactly what information is shared among countries, but we've seen over the past couple of years that the coordination is better between, for example, the Government of Canada, PSEPC, and Department of Homeland Security. It is better, but it can always be improved.
It may not necessarily be a question of the volume, but perhaps the quality and—usually in these sorts of things, more importantly—the timeliness of the information. That's been, frankly, for us one of the more significant issues over the past year or two as the Government of Canada has really gotten its act together, at least in terms of interfacing with industry.
It isn't so much now the volume or the quality of the information, which has improved; the big outstanding issue right now for us is the timeliness. There was a time, for example two years ago, when members of our association who had level two security clearances could get security briefings on the generalized threat environment in the United States. They would be hosted by the FBI, Homeland Security, and CIA. We would go to Washington for these briefings. We didn't have the same sort of briefing in Canada.
We've begun now to receive those briefings here in Canada, as of last year. It's been worked on by Natural Resources Canada, and they do it in cooperation with the other agencies. So we're now starting to work with better information, but it continues to be an issue for us with respect to the timeliness of the information we're receiving.
