Most Recent Speeches (Page 1438 of 1440)


October 25, 1979

Mr. Axworthy:

Mr. Speaker, my supplementary question is for the Minister of Finance. In the statement of Governor Bouey where he said that he has been making recommendations, is it not true that it is this Minister of Finance who is agreeing with those recommendations, and is it also not true it is this Minister of Finance who refuses to take any action whatsoever to help the consumers of housing who are facing a 30 per cent increase in carrying costs? Is it not this Minister of Finance who refused to take any action to stimulate the housing market, and is it not this Minister of Finance who acquiesces with the minister of housing, whose only action in the housing field is to take people to jail?

I just want to know if the minister could explain whether the provisions of the bill contain any retroactivity for those spouses under the provisions of the bill.

October 19, 1979

Mr. Axworthy:

Mr. Speaker, I would like to ask the first minister if he will be prepared to use his influence to influence some of the more traditional members of his party to desist from putting forward outdated ideas about privatizing national corporations that serve the public interest.

In addition, would he also examine his own mortgage credit program and recognize that it will do nothing to stimulate the housing market, that it will only serve 30 per cent of Canadians and, in fact, will not provide any form of assistance to bring new people into the market?

Will the Prime Minister give assurances that this government will shelve plans to privatize CMHC, and will he also undertake immediate plans to reduce mortgage interest rates and help people who really need to buy houses?

October 19, 1979

Mr. Lloyd Axworthy (Winnipeg-Fort Garry):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Prime Minister. With mortage interest rates in this country now at the level of 14 per cent and, as the first minister is aware, with the housing market in this country now in a serious crisis, with starts down 13 per cent, new purchases in a decline, and 30,000 unemployed in the construction industry-with these kinds of figures, is the first minister prepared to develop immediate plans to come to the aid of the housing market in Canada and, in particular, is he prepared to shelve any plans to privatize the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation so that the corporation can get down to the business of solving the housing crisis, rather than worrying about its existence in the next three or four weeks?
