Mr. Edward Broadbent (Oshawa-Whitby):
Mr. Speaker, the minister continues to assume that sarcasm constitutes an adequate answer in the House. Would he also explain to the House why he summarily dismissed two practical proposals to increase the supply of low cost housing and a tax reduction for low and medium income people, two important steps to deal with unemployment, describing them as cold porridge when the government will not offer any porridge at all before 1977? Why does he reject these practical proposals out of hand?
