Mr. Robinson (Etobicoke-Lakeshore):

Mr. Speaker, I agree with the Hon. Member's altruistic motives. I am sure it is altruistic motives that are contained in the Bill, and the reasons for providing them. I do not think that as yet we have decided upon the policies as to when we would divest ourselves of the assets. Surely it is going to have to be actuarially sound. There would probably not be too many people interested in acquiring the business unless it was making a profit. I see nothing wrong with making a profit, whether by the Government or private enterprise.
