Good morning. Thank you for answering our questions.
The budget will soon be adopted, and the Government of Canada will vote on funding that will enable big businesses to promote the safe use of natural gas in our homes and to advertise to say that it is a very clean source of energy. So we can say that nothing has been lost from the start. Everything is possible with our taxes, and that money will not be going back to taxpayers. Just to reassure you.
We are talking about research and development. You work in pure research and development. Bombardier wouldn't have its current infrastructure if our various governments had not, at one point, invested and approved loans that were later paid back and that enabled the company to develop. We would almost believe we were in Star Trek. We're talking about prototypes that still need to be developed, and that's no small feat.
I'm a little bit concerned about the various ranges of maintenance and other services at the Jean Lesage Airport. I have difficulty imagining this mode of transportation, which is larger than the airport itself, landing where we live. But what I really like about your product is that it can go anywhere. It can transport dozens of houses to a given location, in order to develop a region. Frankly, the big oil companies and diamond and gold mining companies will need to put their infrastructures in place quickly. Infrastructure has often been mentioned as one of the problems with getting established.
My question is along those lines. When it comes to the transport of liquids, could they be adapted to replace pipelines and transport natural gas from Alberta to western Canada, for example?
