The minister seems to have misunderstood me as he did the hon. member's resolution. He advanced the argument, and he did not try to justify it in the light of anything else, that if the government were going to collect money through taxation then they would have to have some control over how that money was spent. He can read his own speech tomorrow and I am sure he will find that. Then with respect to the grants to the provinces under the tax transfer agreements he shifted his position and in my opinion advanced an entirely different set of arguments.
