May 29, 1972 (28th Parliament, 4th Session)

PC

Robert Gordon Lee Fairweather

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Fairweather:

I hesitate to take the advice of the hon. member, whose usual routine, to say the least, is to take a double step or two-step. I have something to say, if the hon. member can refrain from talking about steps, because this is a half step or, putting it in another way, not really a conclusive step. I hope the Hansard reporter is enjoying this, because our interchange is not adding anything constructive to this lamentably inadequate provision. I suppose, as parliamentarians, we should stand in some awe of the government's agility to sidestep the real decisions which ought to have been made as a result of the two-year study.
