Mr. Speaker, I would like to ask the minister whether he is continuing his difficult negotiations with the province of Ontario on the possibility of establishing an interprovincial park in the Lake Timiskaming area?

Joseph Jacques Jean Chrétien (Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development)

Liberal

Mr. Chretien:

Mr. Speaker, I keep in touch with the governments of Ontario and Quebec, but I must tell the House that the main part of the park which interests the department most is obviously on the Quebec side, because lakes and mountains are on that side. We are always interested in obtaining part of the territory of Ontario if that is possible.

GOVERNMENT POLICY-DISTRIBUTION OF ANGLOPHONE FILMS

Lloyd Roseville Crouse

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Lloyd R. Crouse (South Shore):

Mr. Speaker, I also have a question for the Secretary of State who, according to the roster, is supposed to be here today, but in his absence I will direct it to the Prime Minister. Does the Prime Minister consider that the Canadian film policy as outlined yesterday by the Secretary of State will satisfactorily contribute to the development of the Canadian film industry without an effective distribution network for Anglophone films?

QUEBEC-LONGSHOREMEN'S STRIKE-GOVERNMENT APPROACH TO PROBLEM OF JOB SECURITY

PC

Robert Lorne Stanfield (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Progressive Conservative

Hon. Robert L. Stanfield (Leader of the Opposition):

Mr. Speaker, I wish to direct a question to the Minister of Labour. It is a little unusual but I would ask for your indulgence in view of the fact that a bill is to be introduced later today and we will not receive printed copies of it for some time. The question might somewhat facilitate deliberations this afternoon in preparation for second reading. Can the minister indicate very briefly what approach he is taking to the solution of the problem of job security?

Mr. Speaker, it is true that I intend to introduce a bill in the House later this day, hopefully later this afternoon. As I said yesterday, I should like to assist hon. members opposite as much as possible in these circumstances-

Mr. Mac T. McCutcheon (Lambton-Kent):

Mr. Speaker, may I direct a question to the Minister of National Defence. Can the minister assure the House that the ethical guidelines concerning the use of government aircraft during election campaigns, as outlined on June 30,1972, at page 3682 of Hansard, were not violated by the Prime Minister on his visit to northeastern Ontario last weekend in the undeclared election campaign?

Mr. McCutcheon:

Yes, Mr. Speaker. Now that the minister is awake, may I ask him a supplementary question, or perhaps I should repeat the first one. Can the minister assure the House that the ethical guidelines concerning the use of government aircraft during election campaigns, as outlined on June 30,1972 at page 3682 of Hansard, were not violated by the Prime Minister on his visit to northeastern Ontario last weekend in the undeclared election campaign?

Hon. E. J. Benson (Minister of National Defence):

Mr. Speaker, I am sure that the use of government aircraft here is far better than that in the province of Ontario and that we do not violate these principles.
