Once we stop giving grants to induce factories and industries to move to submarginal areas, and once economic conditions return to normal, those factories and industries will not stay, because economic conditions will be against them. Every businessman in Canada knows this. I cannot understand why this fact has escaped the government.
My colleague showed that we are not creating new jobs, merely transferring jobs. We increase employment in one region and decrease it in another region, proof of which is this: Our total unemployment is not falling. I suspect we are not being given the true unemployment picture in this country, and this bothers me.
