Mr. R. Gordon L. Fairweather@Fundy-Royal

Mr. Speaker, it is significant that the Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce (Mr. Pepin) is introducing this bill and not the Minister of National Revenue (Mr. Gray). If we wanted to search for the rationalization of the government's approach to the whole matter, perhaps the fact of the minister's imprimatur on the bill would provide the answer.
The minister speaks about division in the country. He mentioned particularly division amongst provincial leaders, but I do not think he mentioned the most significant division of all and one which we have watched for the last two years, the division in the Cabinet of this country.
