Hon. John A. Fraser (Postmaster General and Minister of the Environment):
Mr. Speaker, the fact is that negotiations between Canada and the United States which are aimed at leading to an agreement are going on now and will continue. All I have said is that it is unrealistic to assume, with the complications of those negotiations from a technical, economic and scientific point of view, that we will be in a position to have the agreement in practically completed form and signed before the next presidential election.
