Summary: In summary, I believe that Canada has an excellent foundation from which to build upon, however, significant changes to the current distribution of the government's "R&D Investment" portfolio needs to be addressed in order to better align with the needs of 2015 and beyond and not the 1950's. This not the time for the Government of Canada to retrench, it is a time to show leadership, re-tool programs to align with the needs of 2015 and beyond and not the 1950's by focusing on funding that will drive self-sustaining jobs and not in itself sustaining the jobs.
