Hon. Jeanne Sauve (Minister of Communications):

Mr. Speaker, I agree with that policy of the CRTC. It is designed to allow Canadians to view Canadian programs and to encourage the Canadian broadcasting industry to produce those programs. The hon. member is suggesting by his question that he would like to see Canada submerged in American programs to a degree that there would not be a Canadian broadcasting industry any more. I am surprised at that kind of a question coming from the hon. member.
