Mr. J. G. Lind (Middlesex):
Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct my question to my colleague, the Minister of Finance. It relates to the increased service charges that banks have now adopted. First of all, if a merchant imposes an extra service charge and collaborates with another merchant across the street it is called retail price maintenance. I wonder whether there is any retail price maintenance involved when the banks increase their service charges in this way and affect all citizens of Canada?
