Mr. John Bosley (Don Valley West):

June 29, 1984
the Cabinet indicated that the pool has lost in the order of $20 million to date? Will he give the House a guarantee that, whatever happens in the negotiations with the provinces, no more public money will be put into the sinkhole of the sports pool and that the House of Commons can expect that the sports pool will be closed before the House resumes sitting in the fall?
