Mr. Baker:

Mr. Speaker, before I direct my question to the Hon. Member, I would like just to comment that it is quite unfortunate that a massive tax audit was started in the fall of 1979 when the Progressive Conservative Party was in power, and we saw for four years fishermen harrassed throughout Canada. Some of the statements made by previous speakers on the unfairness of the collection system certainly ring true. It is unfortunate that the tax audit was ordered in 1979. I am sure

that if the Liberal Government had been in power at that time it would not have been ordered.
