Progressive Conservative

Mr. Ritchie (Dauphin):

Mr. Chairman, we have been constantly lectured by Third World countries that we are not doing enough for them. With regard to the mine in Guatemala which the hon. member just mentioned, it seems to me that we have contributed substantially to development in that country. Even though the wages may only be two bits an hour, they are still greater than what they were before. At any rate, in many cases these companies are taken over by those Third World governments, and they end up with the assets which Canada has contributed in the development of the country.
