November 5, 1979 (31st Parliament, 1st Session)

PC

John Allen Fraser (Minister of the Environment; Postmaster General)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Fraser:

I thank the hon. member for his question. As the hon. member and the House know, the present regime of law to control the emission sources lies with the provinces. As I have said to the House, I do not intend at the moment to change that.
With regard to the company that the hon. member mentioned, the chief executive officer of Inco has been written to by myself, and I have asked for a meeting with him along with representatives of some other companies. That meeting will be arranged as soon as possible.
