People will come anyway, the reason to get involved is to keep impacts positive.

We're also fairly stubborn, I think, fairly independent. We have our share of difficulties with our federal government, although I've tried to as I am here encourage a better way of discussing those problems.

We've been doing this as long as I can remember.

You can expect there will be more mobile search products coming out. Speech as a mode for doing searches is getting more reliable.

You are a tourism state. We think there is more potential on the coast than anything we can do. So I'll just leave that with you, then if there are opportunities between the two systems that provide a mutual benefit that can benefit both British Columbia and Alaska and the systems themselves then I'm very much interested in pursuing those.

That results in more money for everybody in the government.

You know, we have our differences, everybody does, honest, real differences, but I do believe strongly that we as neighbors are drawn together far more than we're driven apart.

In one line of his poem he said good fences make good neighbors. I'd like to think that Alaska and British Columbia working together can prove that we can be pretty darned good neighbors without fences.

My view is that while you do occasionally have differences you ought to have a process where you can sit down and talk about things. How else do you solve problems?
