September 13, 1988 (33rd Parliament, 2nd Session)

PC

Reginald Francis Stackhouse

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Stackhouse:

Mr. Chairman, the Government is willing to accept the amendment. I should point out to the House that already the process of consultation of interested and informed parties has begun. So far hundreds of letters have been sent to interested persons and groups in this field to ask for recommendations of prospective nominations for the proposed board and already many and useful suggestions have been received. Such consultations will obviously continue. We are certainly happy to expand that consultative process to include the Leader of the Opposition and the Leader of any other recognized Party in the House.
