That's about a month per telephone, or 2Yz times your monthly phone rental fee. Last year we paid more than 46 million dollars to pretty important people. Our employ- ees. They in turn spent a lion's share of that money right here in Alberla. Last year our 890 vehicles used over a million gallons of gas. We ordered everything from pens, pencils and paper to gianl-sized build- ings right here in Alberla. We even paid over two million dollars in properly taxes. What does it all mean to you? Well, every time you spend even a dime with AGT, someone else benefits.
