The Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources and I are taking the opportunity to assess the situation with regard to the loss of this contract, in order to decide where we go from here to develop new markets for what we believe is a very important Canadian resource, the Candu reactor system.

That will now be behind us. We can look from here to Mexico and about five other countries which are very good potential markets.
