Hon. George Hees (Prince Edward-Hastings):
Mr. Speaker, I rise on a motion under Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. As an important initiative to overcome our massive deficit of $11.5 billion a year in manufactured products will be to show these products to far more potential customers in the United States and in the world market. 1 move, seconded by the hon. member for Hastings (Mr. Ellis):
That, as a preliminary to "Operation world markets", which should be held next spring, the government should, this winter, bring the important buyers from the principal markets in the United States, to see Canadian manufactured products in giant trade shows in Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg and Vancouver, and our heavy machinery in the factories where it is made across the country, as a means of making United States buyers, and later the principal buyers in the world market, more aware of what this country has to offer, and, as a result, greatly increase the sale of Canadian manufactured products-the ones that produce jobs.
