Mr. Chair, first of all, in terms of asking questions with respect to cost impacts, we did not include that as part of the survey. We prepared the survey in response to an invitation to appear as a witness, which was with respect to the March 31, 2011, deadline. That was not one of the questions.
We did hear from the members of the local governments in B.C. representing 74 infrastructure projects that had been approved. As was said by President Nyce, local governments are working very hard to achieve the deadline. They are fast-tracking; they're doing everything within their power to meet the requirements set out by Canada.
The question was about issues that arose from our survey. They've been the types of issues that have been addressed by President Nyce here today. They were typically cases where there were approvals or issues beyond the control, or outside the regulatory purview sometimes, of the local government.
The second issue we heard in some cases was the short construction season and the timing of the announcements.
Those are the two sort of predominant issues that arose, and they've been explained with some examples here today by President Nyce.
