The article discusses government interventions in the economy which could bring the needed spark to re-ignite the country's high-technology industry. The Canadian Unsolicited Proposal (USP) program, it says, could be re-introduced as it allowed companies to come to the federal government with project proposals during the 1970-1995 period. The Canadian Astronautics Ltd., it adds, is one firm that made wide use of the USP as well as EMS Technologies. The federal government, it concludes, could give the program a good study for a more effective application.
