And what about the? What about the job losses? Well the job losses is terrible. It would be Very unfortunate all those jobs lost by the government should try to find a way to get those workers in London and elsewhere to find other jobs in other areas. Not Chops to build in our lab is that will destroy lives of children in Amen. And other people in that or maybe seventy the Arabia's Kinda should have a way to help people not just say well we can't do anything about this arms contract and or even improving it. Just finally the minister. Who is signing off on this Francois? Philippe Champagne is the latest of Ministers who have had this file and it's a hot potato if you could speak to administer champagne directly. What would you say to him? Tell Vegan not very proud with my former student because he's my former student in my classroom. That the you've just stood out but just like Young before him and other ministers just doesn't have the courage to put an end to steal in the courage to tell Justin Trudeau in the members of the government that this should be over in Canada should have done like many other countries have done suspend the export of arms the Saudi Arabia even end the exports to to the country that is the worst country in the world when it comes to human rights.

Do you remember when when you were contacted and your people that you have you know. University of Toronto. Were contacted to get some help for that. Oh I remember that. Very clearly. Carol when you and the other scientists from the University of Toronto when you saw those three American astronauts safe waving for the cameras. How did you feel how would you?
