Hon. Jean Corbeil (Minister of TVansport):
Madam Speaker, the hon. member knows that in addition to the Standing Committee on Transport that is examining this situation we have had a report from the review commission of the NTA. We also have a report from the Royal Commission on Passenger Transportation. The Department of Transport with the Transport Association of Canada has been examining this. At the same time the NTA is reviewing the applications from both railways.
At the end of the day these will all come to a conclusion and we will address the question at that time. At the present time there is no fire in the house.
