Mr. J. G. Lind (Middlesex):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs. It is my understanding that one of the purposes of the Combines Investigation Act is to ensure continued competition within the business realm. My question is directed to the recent amendment to the Ontario Insurance Act, particularly in so far as it may restrict competition within the life insurance industry. Are the officials of the hon. gentleman's department examining the amendment to the provincial insurance act passed by the present Ontario government in order to determine whether this legislation constitutes a breach of section 32 of the Combines Investigation Act?
