Thank you very much.
Of course, in terms of its being appropriate funding, there's seldom ever enough funding. We can always use more funding, but you're right that a lot of funding has been added. A few years ago $10 million was added to it, and a lot of new programs were put in place.
But I think you're referring to the backlog. Of course, that is unacceptable, and we're working very hard in order to bring that under control. As was said in the previous conversation, if we can digitize, get people online, reduce the paperwork, simplify the application, that all helps. The simple fact is that sometimes when a veteran fills in the application, if one thing is missing that's vital to the application, it means it has to go back. That means a delay. There are so many things that cause the backlog, and it's most unfortunate for the veteran. We want to make sure they have all the services they can. There are a number of services added to it, for example the education fund. A number of things have been added.
Do you want to elaborate?
