Mr. Otto Jelinek (High Park-Humber Valley):

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the President of the Treasury Board. In view of the minister's statement arising from my question of last Friday that a tougher stand will be taken against illegal strikers, would the minister now be more specific and advise the House what exact steps the government intends to take regarding the alarming and continuous growth of wildcat strikes in Canada?

Mr. Donald Maclnnis (Cape Breton-East Richmond):

Mr. Speaker, I have a supplementary question for the President of the Treasury Board. Since the minister is inclined to apply discipline now, will he take a good, sharp look at section 107 of the Criminal Code and take some action with respect to the Cape Breton Development Corporation?

Mr. Speaker, my question is directed to the Secretary of State. I should like to ask the minister whether he has made a decision with respect to the request by the Native Council of Canada for a grant to have the award winning educational film "Mocassin Flats" dubbed in French for the benefit of the many French-speaking Canadians of native ancestry?

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. In view of the fact this application was submitted over a year ago and was lost twice in the department and the Native Council had to resubmit it twice, would the minister take every possible step to see that this bureaucratic mess is brought to an end quickly?

Mr. Bill Knight (Assiniboia):

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the minister in charge of the Canadian Wheat Board. In view of the fact the asking price of the Canadian Wheat Board on the international market is running somewhere around $5.60, in view of the fact that the international

price on the commodity market in Chicago has been running in the neighbourhood of $3.90, and in view of the problems in our transportation system, would the minister inform the House whether the Canadian Wheat Board is at the present time negotiating contracts and is in a position to sign contracts for the movement and sale of grain for the rest of the crop year and into the next crop year in the fall?

Hon. Otto E. Lang (Minister of Justice):

Mr. Speaker, the Canadian Wheat Board has made substantial sales of grain for the forward shipping period in the summer as well as into the fall and, indeed, immediately beyond. It is not customary to comment on specific additional negotiations. There is a very wide price differential between the Wheat Board quoted price and the market price being offered in the United States. This kind of wide differential existed previously but the Wheat Board held its price, and subsequent events justified it in doing so.
