Hon. Michel Cote (Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs):
Mr. Speaker, again 1 say to the Hon. Member that the department's responsibility is to listen to the various spokespersons and interest groups and, as far as I know, the Consumers' Association of Canada does speak for a legitimate interest group. It so happens that I had a meeting this morning with CAC representatives, a meeting which ended just before the question period. Our discussions covered various issues concerning the Consumers' Association of Canada. As I said, the government has every interest in listening to all groups, including the CAC.
