However, Dr. Duncan Stewart, General Manager, Security and Disruptive Technologies Program, National Research Council, says Canada is not yet at this level  of the “game”.  In his special presentation on “Stimulating Disruptive Technology through Canadian Public Procurement” at Canada’s Defence Perspectives 2020-2050: Recapitalization and the Canadian Forces conference on March 30, 2016,  Dr. Stewart explained how Canada needs a long-term investment and commitment to become globally competitive in technology.
