Oh, well, thank you. Then let me pose some questions for the record, and perhaps our witnesses could respond in writing to the committee, if that's fine, Mr. Chair.
Since there are three partners in all of this, in fairness, when we're considering the federal government's role, one leg of the stool hasn't been talked about. I'd like you to tell us, or submit to us, what problems and obstacles the provinces have presented to your members with respect to how their programs function in carrying out your ISF projects. Did you proactively ask them to waive any of those obstacles before you got into these projects? Are your organizations asking them for relief similar to what you're asking the federal government for?
I'll leave that for you. I think that would inform us greatly in terms of assessing the federal government's true role in this and putting your ask in some perspective.
