Mr. Lamberl (Edmonion West):

One way to become popular in this House, Mr. Speaker, is to be brief in your speeches. However, I am warning hon. members that if I cut my speech short today it is going to be that much longer on Tuesday, so they may as well all go fishing.

We had such a mass of documents presented to us at the briefing this afternoon that I was wondering what was coming. I did take a look over at the hon. member for Waterloo (Mr. Saltsman), and I would like you to look at him, Mr. Speaker, if you will excuse the personal reference, as I am sure the hon. member will. During the course of the year he had adopted a more modish hair style, yet at the beginning of the week he returned as he is now, plucked and shorn as any taxpayer expects to be when a Minister of Finance presents a budget. So, he has shown his expectations and he will tell us on Tuesday what he thinks about it.

I think the timetable for discussions with the provinces disclosed by the minister is quite right. There is no doubt about it that discussions will have to be had with the provinces. Although the tax documents do not speak, as the white paper did almost timorously, about co-operation with the provinces, the minister and the government now know that unless there is the active co-operation of the provinces all that has been written in the white paper and in this other document means nothing. The majority of the provinces in this country have already indicated that what was in the white paper was not acceptable to them, and that there was no way that this government was going to impose its will in this regard upon the provinces.

We heard a lot of applause this afternoon-

Mr. Lamberi (Edmonion West):

In light of the reaction of the countries concerned, which is reported to be negative, and in view of the fact that Canada has a vital stake in promoting trade and relations in this area, surely the minister must understand that there should be a clarifying statement so that we can all get our views on the record in respect of this vital subject.

West):

If the Queen's Own Rifles of Canada are to be redesignated as the 3rd Battalion PPCLI, what is the proposed designation of the Loyal Edmonton Regiment now the 3rd Battalion of the PPCLI?

Mr. Lamberl (Edmonion West):

Perhaps the minister would read the questions as I phrased them last Wednesday. He would then be in a better position to judge them, as would Your Honour.
