Mr. Horner:

I might also say, at that time the present leader of the party was very active in getting rid of him.

Mr. Horner:

Mr. Speaker, the Conservative government of 1961 exported something like $500 million worth of cars. Today we are exporting something over $10 billion worth. If we used their efforts as a guide, I am sure it would be a dismal failure today.

We are encouraging a tremendous amount of R and D to be undertaken in Canada. We have taken steps already, and I announced additional steps yesterday, to encourage the Big Three to spend more money on R and D. We will continue to pressure them to spend more money on R and D in the automobile industry in Canada.

Mr. Horner:

With regard to the number of ships I counted in Vancouver, I think I was in Vancouver about a week ago and I counted seven ships. I do not know for certain whether they were waiting for grain, sulphur or potash.

Mr. Horner:

They did suggest to me that this winter, wheat shipments to China have been very good and they had encountered no difficulty in receiving them. They said that a year ago they had run into difficulty.

I can say to the House that in their trip to Canada not so long ago, they spent some time looking at Vancouver harbour. We made them aware of our intentions with regard to improving the deliverability of wheat through Prince Rupert. I might say that I was in Vancouver recently, and counted very, very few ships in the harbour waiting for grain.
