Just my two cents to strongly support Jerome's idea of working together to
secure high-level, paying, jobs.

We have the talent, ability and desire - all that's missing is a veneer of
professionalism and extremely well presented bids/ proposals.

I'd so love to see us move up to the next level because I keep seeing others
(engineering firms) take our ideas to market.

Over the weekend there was an article (in French) on the fact that Quebec
has now greenlighted reedbed systems for blackwater and some company is
charging nearly 6000 US to put in a system EXACTLY  like the one I put in
last summer for 1500 !! ( to add insult to injury this same company claims
that they invented the technology !)
