44 Closing Thought  Our competitiveness as a country and as a society will depend on our ability to make strategic policy decisions. 1.To remain competitive and maintain our particular concept of society we must strike a balance between the open market and sector regimes. 2.We have to drive innovation by Government taking the risk and being a demanding customer. 3.We need Academia to permit oxygen in the room for commercialization programs to take hold.  We cannot expect to have it both ways. We must have a comprehensive debate in Canada about this. 44
