REGULATION OF TELECOMMUNICATIONS BY QUEBEC- POSITION OF GOVERNMENT

SC

René Matte

Social Credit

Mr. Rene Matte (Champlain):

Mr. Speaker, I wish to direct a question to the Minister of Communications.

Have the minister and his officials studied or agreed to the regulation of telecommunications by Quebec and the rate schedules set out in bill 35 where cablevision is defined as a public service, falling under the jurisdiction of a public service agency of the Quebec government?

Hon. Robert Stanbury (Minister of Communications):

Mr. Speaker, I think the bill to which the hon. member refers applies to action within the jurisdiction of the province of Quebec. I do not think the federal government would take exception to any action which is within the jurisdiction of the province of Quebec.

PC

Lloyd Roseville Crouse

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Lloyd R. Crouse (South Shore):

Mr. Speaker, I wish to direct my question to the Minister of the Environment and Fisheries. In view of the decline by 51 million pounds in the quantity and more than $6 million in the value of fish landings for May as announced by the fisheries service of his department, will the minister inform the House whether he is still carrying on discussions with American authorities concerning the possibility of re-establishing the sword fishing industry in Atlantic Canada, and if so, is there any indication that import restrictions imposed by the United States authorities on Canadian swordfish imports may soon be lifted?

Hon. lack Davis (Minister of the Environment and Fisheries):

Mr. Speaker, I do not think there is any likelihood that the United States will relent and change its stipulation that swordfish containing more than half a part per million of mercury will not be allowed into the United States. However, we will continue to make representations.

With regard to the guidelines released yesterday on pipeline construction for Arctic oil and gas, on which he gave an extensive interview last night, has the government decided which agency will screen applications and supervise construction under these guidelines?

Mr. Aiken:

In view of the fact that most of the intensive research up to this time has been done by private industry and not by government sources, will the minister indicate whether the government will consult private industry, or what expertise his department expects to have?

Mr. Chretien:

Mr. Speaker, my department and the Department of the Environment have spent more than $15 million in the last three years to have some research done and the companies that make an application will have to prove that the construction of the pipeline will not cause any damage. If they cannot prove it, they will not be allowed to build it.
