Cool. I won't see it, but still neat.

Maybe it will show up on YouTube or someplace for the rest of us to see it.

Asked about the NRC and the research that took place.

Talked about manufacturing in China and Canada and the importance of keeping a portion of the manufacturing domestic.

Asked about the impact and how they deal with a rising Canadian dollar.

Asked what percentage of sales come from Canada - 25% CAN, 50% USA, 25% rest of world.

Hey, thanks for the recap. That was well done.

I always wondered what the sales breakdown was by country. My hunch was more along the lines of 30/60/10. 25/50/25 is pretty cool.

The breakdown has definitely changed a lot in the last couple of years. It was pretty steady between 2002-2008 but then it really began going all over the map.

Here's the link to the video clip:

Interviewing rule number one: correctly pronounce the name of the person you are interviewing.

It's the poor telemarketers that have the worst time with it . . . "Is Eye-ann Col-qwa-houn there?" Oh dear . . .

No, he's at the party. It just "went Canadian".
