Hon. Martial Asselin (Charlevoix):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to put a question to the Right Hon. Prime Minister.
The Prime Minister of Canada was reported today by the press as having stated that the present unrest in Quebec would prompt Quebecers to vote for his party not only because the Liberal party represents a strong government but also because the Quebec government is weak. Obviously, I should like to ask the Prime Minister whether he can clarify that statement, and also whether he intends to make an election issue out of that important question, namely the unrest in Quebec.
Can the Prime Minister throw light on the statement reported in the press?
