Mr. Max Saltsman (Waterloo-Cambridge):

Mr. Speaker, I would like to direct my question to the Minister of Finance: it is in connection with the worsening unemployment figures which were released today.
Since the minister does not seem to have any concrete proposals to put forward to reduce the level of unemployment in Canada, and since unemployment in the Ottawa-Hull area has increased almost 30 per cent in one month as a result of government cutbacks, would the government reconsider its policy and put off the cutbacks in order to ensure that we do not reach double-digit unemployment in the winter months?
