Jean Lesage (Minister of Northern Affairs and National Resources)

Liberal

Mr. Lesage:

It will be at first at the official level, for sure, sir, but the composition of the discussion team is not yet definite. There will be representatives of various departments of government on the team. We have asked the United States if there would be representatives of the states on their discussion team and they have told us there would not be. That is why I am securing the opinion of the premiers of the provinces interested and also that is why I am going to have full discussions with the premier of British Columbia on June 5.
