Progressive Conservative

Right Hon. Brian Muironey (Prime Minister):

My hon. friend refers to the fact that compensation was the "sticking point". Compensation was not the sticking point. The sticking point was the refusal of the Liberal Government for 40 years to even acknowledge and apologize for what had taken place.
