July 9, 1980 (32nd Parliament, 1st Session)

PC

Dave Nickerson

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Dave Nickerson (Western Arctic):

Madam Speaker, I would like to direct a question to the Prime Minister. It requires a very simple "Yes" or "No" answer. The deadline of July 15 which Foothills Pipe Lines has stated is the final date by which government approval must be given if the pre-build section of the Alaska gas pipeline is to be constructed this year is fast approaching: It is just a few days away.
Will the government tell us, now, whether or not they plan to grant, or deny, that approval?
