Hon. Ron Basford (Minisier of Consumer and Corporate Affairs):

Yes. The Combines Investigation Branch of the Department of Consumer and Corporate Affairs has examined the advertising material used in advertising tires by the Firestone Tire and Rubber Company of Canada Limited, since September 1969, and has concluded that the material, which is different from that used in the United States, does not afford reason to believe that the Act has been violated so as to warrant formal inquiry.
