Mr. Gordon Gilchrist (Scarborough East):
Madam Speaker, every thinking Canadian knows that technological upgrading of Canadian manufacturing processes and products is the necessary prerequisite to economic recovery, sustained growth and Canadian jobs, but these jobs call for educated and trained people. I move, seconded by the hon. member for Simcoe North (Mr. Lewis):
That the Minister of Finance renounce immediately the ill-considered cutbacks in Financial aid to Canada's community colleges and universities so that talented Canadian young people can receive the teaching, and the training which is their right and which will provide Canada with the skills it desperately needs to counteract 15 years of Liberal shortsightedness in buying from other nations those things which could be produced by educated and trained Canadians.
