Through you, Madam Chair, different projects have different benefits for different communities. There could be a project that may not be located in a small community but that benefits a small community. For example, the transmission infrastructure. If you want to build your electrical transmission to reduce your dependence on coal-fired generation and you want to connect to the existing hydro system, those benefits are reaped by communities throughout the region. We feel that regardless of the location or who owns the infrastructure, whether a small community or a province or a region or a big city, it's about the benefit. We feel that every community will be able to reap some benefits from the investments that we are making through our overall infrastructure plan, and particularly through the bank.
