To be very open with you, with all the people we've met, we had opportunities.... If you go on the Internet and you punch in LNG, you get about three months of reading. Everything is there, you know. They've discussed it and we've discussed it, but the big question is whether they have the capacity to make a decision and say, “Yes, you have a green light here; go ahead. We are going to talk to the municipal authority, the county, to authorize it. Don't worry; everything is fine.”
It seems they have no authority, so there has to be a direction line because they do have the information now. At the beginning, if I go back two years ago, they did not have the information. They did not even know what LNG was. If you talked about LNG or about CNG and stuff like this, there were some people who didn't even know what it was.
Today they have the information and they know where to get the information about what they did in the States and whatever. There have been some standards established, but in Canada we are restricted on a lot of things we do. It would take too long to tell the stories, but one thing is clear: all our people do is put new regulations in place. There is nobody who is taking the old ones away.
Sooner or later they should clean up their act and say, “Okay, fine. What do we need today?” That's what we need for LNG; let's have only what we need for LNG. Don't look at what is in the book elsewhere. Talk to me about LNG. That will be solved. That's it, because it's not that complicated.
Also, what we need is to convince the suppliers, the people who produce parts, components, and everything, to join the club. We came in to a dealer in Cardinal two weeks ago with an LNG truck. The guy refused to get our truck into the garage. For sure, we have LNG, yes, but if we have a leak, what do we do? Okay, fix it outside. Yes, but it was minus 15 degrees, and it was snowing. We had to tow the truck back to Montreal, because our garage has to be modified and ventilated and everything to accept LNG trucks inside.
There are a lot of things we can talk about, and it goes far beyond saying that I'm running LNG trucks. It's not as simple as this.
