PRIVILEGE

MR. BRASSARD (LAPOINTE) SIMILARITY OF NAMES IN NEWSPAPER REPORTS

LIB

Augustin Brassard

Liberal

Mr. Augustin Brassard (Lapointe):

Mr. Speaker, I wish to rise on a question of privilege.

In certain newspapers of the province of Quebec, my name has been linked with the now famous luncheon which took place in Quebec city during the week end. I should like to say that, while I did not attend this luncheon, my colleague from Chicoutimi did. Despite the fact that our surnames are identical, newspapermen should be careful not to mistake what he does for what I do.

Mr. Vincent Brassard (Chicoutimi):

I rise on a question of privilege, Mr. Speaker.

I understood the hon. member for Lapointe (Mr. Brassard) to complain, a while ago, that his name was mistaken for mine in some week-end press reports.

I want to state that if such an error took place I had nothing to do with it and that I am not seeking any publicity. If the hon. member for Lapointe is looking for publicity, well, I am in no way responsible for it.

Mr. Broome:

Mr. Speaker, this bill will apply to government contracts for supplies to be purchased within Canada. Its purpose is to prevent discrimination against a tenderer due to his distance from the government

supply depot or stockpiling point and the consequent additional freight charges the tenderer must add to his tender. In short, it takes away a built-in tariff enjoyed by companies in the central parts of Canada as opposed to those in the extremities.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
