Hon. Jean Chretien (Leader of the Opposition):
Mr. Speaker, is the minister aware that there was a subcommittee of this House that produced a report last October indicating the need to move in that field quickly? Five members of that committee were members of his own party. They presented a unanimous report to the House of Commons. Why is the government not listening to the House of Commons rather than just dismissing some very important problems in Canada?
