Mr. Alexandre Cyr (Gaspe):
Mr. Speaker, my question is directed to the President of the Privy Council.
On December 12, I asked him about the possibility of the Government of Canada providing assistance in eastern Canada, more specifically in the Gaspe Peninsula, to disaster victims who suffered losses as a result of the storm on December 7.
January 25, 1984
Could the Minister inform the House whether he has received an official request from the Province of Quebec under the program for financial assistance in case of natural disasters, and whether the Government of Canada intends to intervene in this case by making contributions on humanitarian grounds?
