Mr. Speaker, in any event, even there, there are some hazards. Why? Because the wording of the amendment of the hon. member for Fundy-Royal would require the federal government to implement those provincial industrial and economic policies with regard to certain takeovers. Therefore, one could very well say: You have a very poor knowledge of our policies! Why don't you mind your own business?
