Mr. Joe Reid (St. Catharines):
Madam Speaker, in February of last year 158,000 workers were employed in the St. Catharines-Niagara region. This February only 130,000 are so employed. That 18 per cent drop is largely due to the decline in the automotive industry. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Cambridge (Mr. Speyer):
That the Minister of Finance bring a halt to his insane high interest rate policy that is destroying the new car market and keeping auto workers on the Unemployment Insurance Commission line.
