Thank you, Chair.
I'd like to thank our guests for being here today and sharing their thoughts.
As I read your book, which I found very interesting, it almost seems that we should have had you first, because I think that if you're the godfather of all the organizations—
Voices: Oh, oh!
Mr. Ed Holder: I'm not sure if that's exactly appropriate.
According to the booklet, you've indicated that there are 329 companies that are gaming industry-type companies in Canada. Are they all members of ESAC?

Godmother? I don't know what the right term is.
Voices: Oh, oh!
Mr. Ed Holder: I don't want to be incorrect.

I ask this question because, Chair, I'm trying to understand a little bit.
Are there other...? We've heard from the Canadian Interactive Alliance and some other firms that are either gaming companies or.... We've heard from Electronic Arts and Execution Labs, some that seem to act as either.... Aside from the gaming industry direct programming, they do some kind of consulting or they do some.... Who would your competition be in terms of trying to lay claim to being the spokesperson for the industry?

Forgive me, because maybe we didn't get all the....
I'm trying to understand. I'm sure no one is comparable to you in what you do, but if somebody was close, who represented other industries you don't represent, could you name a name? I hate naming the competition, but I call it that in a sense because you talk about how competitive the industry is.
Who else would be there that represents gamers in the Canadian industry?

I'm not trying to make any kind of negative connotation that you don't represent all 329 of them, but I wanted to get the focus of it.
It's rather interesting because when I look at it, you have some pretty serious players here. Warner Brothers games are in here and Nintendo and Microsoft and Sony and Disney, not small players in the industry, so you act for these folks.
What's your smallest client?

Is that so? How do they feel when they hang out with the folks from Microsoft and Nintendo?

I'm still struggling. I'm just learning how to do the solitaire thing on the computer so I'm not the best to get into how it all works, but it strikes me you mentioned there are 65 educational institutions. You're the first that has articulated a number. We heard about Sheridan College, and we had a great representation from there.
How many grads would the 65 institutions spew out in a year?

Spew is a bad word. I'm sorry.
