Hon. Jack H. Horner (Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce):

Mr. Speaker, Statistics Canada has decided to discontinue a number of series of statistics. I believe the wholesale index will be kept up. However, I will make the inquiry to ascertain whether it will be kept up or not.

Mr. Horner:

Hon. members opposite can laugh, but I have not noticed them taking any side on the further development of ski resorts at Lake Louise. A long time ago I advocated more facilities at our national parks for Canadians to ski. That is a little bit risky politically, 1 suppose, so we have not heard from the hon. member who is supposed to be representing that area on that question in this House.

Hon. Jack H. Horner (Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce):

Mr. Speaker, that publication was brought to my attention. I did not read it in detail. I did note the paragraph the hon. member has read to the House. In my perusal of the book, I noted that it was dealing with 1975 and perhaps 1976 figures.

If one made a careful analysis of the economy as was set out in a paper prepared by, for example, the Royal Bank, if one wanted a neutral opinion, away from politics, and using the figures for 1975 as a base for our productivity being 100, that graph suggests that our productivity now, based on 1975 figures being equal to 100, has gone up to 120. One can take from that that we have made substantial improvements in our productivity in manufacturing since 1975, to 1978 and into 1979. If one reads that book and understands that it is based on 1975 and 1976 statistics, one will realize that it is hardly a gauge worthy of mentioning in comparison to 1978 and 1979 figures.
