Mr. Gillies:

The first suggestion in the House of Commons for a one-price system across the country was introduced by the hon. member for Halifax; the minister ought to know that. It had nothing to do with his party.

Mr. Gillies:

It is very difficult to come to a question with the answers we are receiving here today. Seeing that the minister is moving into a policy which, indeed, could take Canada away from the possibility of participating in the multinational, general oil pools for the allocation of oil around the world, I ask the minister what specific leverage he is bringing against the multinational oil companies right now to assure that under no circumstances will Canada not be able to acquire oil from the multinational oil pools. The only time we hear anything about energy from that party is when there is a crisis.

Mr. Gillies:

Let us find out, now, what agreement he has which can be tabled in the House to ensure that under no circumstances will Canada not be able to participate and obtain supplies from the multinational energy, oil pools?
