Mr. Tom McMillan (Hillsborough):
Figures released today by Statistics Canada reveal that Charlottetown and Summer-side, Prince Edward Island, suffered the highest cost of living increase in the entire Atlantic region in February, 1982, compared to the same month last year. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Malpeque (Mr. Gass):
That the Department of Finance investigate the factors that have caused P.E.I. to have such an alarmingly high rate of inflation, which in recent years has consistently been among the worst in the country.
