Hon. Robert L. Stanfield (Leader of the Opposition):
Mr. Speaker, I would like to direct a question, preferably to the Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce, or the Minister of Agriculture. I ask whether in light of the continued congestion at Vancouver, which according to the January 17 market letter of James Richardson and Sons Limited-this was only last week-caused the loss of an additional 17,000-ton wheat sale to Japan, the minister could tell the house what concrete steps the government is taking to move the requested grade of grain to the ships waiting in Vancouver harbour?
