I was impressed by some concerns which have been raised by many of my colleagues in a matter which, in general, is one which looks pretty appealing. I think the hon. member for Kingston and the Islands and the hon. member for Egmont have still to get fulsome answers to the anxieties which they expressed with reference to certain very important matters. I was impressed too by the address by the new hon. member for Rosedale and by that of my colleague for St. John's East.
There seem to be some contradictory elements in this measure which mar our enthusiasm a bit. The lady minister is one of my favourite ministers in the whole cabinet. I cannot even hope to come close to the honourable, learned, and venerable member for Winnipeg North Centre who praised her so fulsomely, but if she would not consider it praising with faint damns or damning with faint praises I would say she is one of the most enlightened ministers of the particular group now in charge of our destinies.
