Mr. Jean-Claude Malepart (Montreal-Sainte-Marie):
Regretfully, Mr. Speaker, Quebecers are again being led down the garden path by the Conservative Government. Having been led down the garden path with respect to the Montreal East refinery, the shipyards, and the international banking centre, this time Quebecers are being led down the garden path by the Conservative Government in the case of the space agency.
Mr. Speaker, we can still hear the echo of the solemn Throne Speech promise made by the Prime Minister (Mr. Mulroney), one hand over his heart and the other on the Bible: a space agency shall be established. Under pressure from various provinces vying for the agency, the Prime Minister, as Le Droit journalist Alain Dexter pointed out, repeated the old slogan of the 1960s: When time comes there will be no commercial, there will be no space agency.
Mr. Speaker, I conclude by saying what Quebecers will reply at the next election: There will no longer be any Conservatives in Quebec.
